Abstract

Hierarchical micro- and nanoscale domain structures in Pb-free Ba(Zr0.2Ti0.8)O3-50(Ba0.7Ca0.3)TiO3 piezoceramics were investigated by transmission electron microscopy. In situ heating and cooling studies of domain structure evolution reveal an irreversible domain transformation from a wedge-shaped rhombohedral nanodomain structure to a lamellar tetragonal domain structure, which could be associated with strong piezoelectricity in Ba(Zr0.2Ti0.8)O3-50(Ba0.7Ca0.3)TiO3 piezoceramics.
