AgNbO3 is considered as one of the most promising alternatives for lead-containing antiferroelectric (AFE) ceramics, and has been drawing progressively more attention. The AFE/ferroelectric (FE) phase-boundary design based on AgNbO3 is very attractive and is a promising means to develop lead-free high-performance pyroelectric materials. In the present study, compounds with a high tolerance factor and high average electronegativity difference and LiNbO3-type composition were proposed as being… CONTINUE READING
