The structure of mixed La0.92Sr0.08Ga0.92Ti0.08O3 (LSGT-8) single crystal, obtained by Czochralsky method, have been investigated in a wide temperature range of 12-1203 K by means of in situ high resolution powder diffraction technique using synchrotron radiation as well as DTA/DSC analysis. Both, diffraction and calorimetric data indicate a first-order phase transition from orthorhombic (space group Pbnm) to rhombohedral (space group R-3c) structure near the room temperature (Tc ≈ 303 K… CONTINUE READING
