Defect chemistry and transport properties of Nd-doped Pb(ZrxTi1−x)O3


The oxygen partial pressure (pO2) dependent conductivity of Nd doped PZT was investigated at different temperatures in order to get information on the nature of the conducting charge carriers and on the chemical oxygen diffusion coefficient. From a positive slope close to 0.25 in log (conductivity) vs. log (pO2) plots it is concluded that PZTwith donor-type… (More)
