Phase diagram of pb(Zr,Ti)O3 solid solutions from first principles.


A first-principles-derived scheme that incorporates ferroelectric and antiferrodistortive degrees of freedom is developed to study finite-temperature properties of Pb(Zr1-xTix)O3 solid solution near its morphotropic phase boundary. The use of this numerical technique (i) resolves controversies about the monoclinic ground state for some Ti compositions, (ii… (More)
