Aging in a relaxor ferroelectric: scaling and memory effects.


A crossover as a function of temperature is found in the zero-field aging properties of the relaxor ferroelectric Pb(Mg(1/3)Nb(2/3))O3. Below a temperature near which nonlinear susceptibility has indicated a suspected phase transition, the time-frequency dependence shows simple scale-independent behavior resembling that for spin glasses. As in spin glasses… (More)
