Abstract:

The pressure-enforced ferroelectric-to-antiferroelectric phase transition in the system PbZrO3-PbTiO3-PbSnO3-PbNb2O6 was investigated as a charge-release mechanism for fuzing. Capacitance, dielectric loss, thermal expansion, and hydrostatic transition pressure were measured over the Mil Spec temperature range.
