Ferroelectric domains are observed with transmission electron microscopy with indications of nano-segregation of Mn. Rietveld refinement (FULLPROF Suite) is used to refine the diffraction patterns, and a phase change from orthorhombic symmetry with space group Amm2 to tetragonal symmetry with space group P4mm is observed when the applied field exceeds 1.4 kV/mm. Phase coexistence between the two phases is also observed at applied fields between 1.2 kV/mm and 1.3 kV/mm with possible implications of being the coercive field EC value of the sample. A better understanding of the structural behaviour of this type of lead-free ceramics will lead to improvements in their piezoelectric and electromechanical properties.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/11420/3475||ISSN:||2190-9385||Institute:||Keramische Hochleistungswerkstoffe M-9||Type:||(wissenschaftlicher) Artikel||Funded by:||Supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) (Grant: SCHN 372/16 – 2 and HI 1867/1 – 1) and the University of Lagos (Grant: CRC NO. 2016/14).|
