Abstract:

The mechanical yield of polycrystalline SrZrO3 at room temperature appears to be related to a domain motion or crystal twinning similar to that which takes place in ferroelectric BaTiO3 under an electric stress. This theory was supported by comparing experimentally determined yield to the expected yield from crystallographic considerations. Small single crystals were grown and photographs further revealed a laminar structure taken to be similar to those known to exist in BaTiO3. This further supports the theory presented. Author
