Abstract

An in situ structural description of the origin of the ferroelectric properties as a function of the applied electric field E was obtained by synchrotron x-ray diffraction. A setup was used to average the effects of the preferred orientation induced by the strong piezoelectric strain and solve in situ the crystal structure as a function of the applied electric field. Hence, we were able to describe the microscopic origin of the macroscopic ferro- and piezoelectric properties of the most widely used ferroelectric material, lead zirconate titanate.
