Paper Abstract

First time comprehensive study of high-current pulsed electron irradiation effects on the structural, optical and dielectric properties of relaxor (Pb(1-x)Lax)(Zr0.65Ti0.35)1-x/4O3 ceramics with x = 4 and 9.75 at.% have been provided. The electron beam had the following parameters: energy E = 250 keV, current density I = 1000 A/cm2, pulse duration τ = 300 ns, beam density - 1015 electrons/cm2 per pulse. Infrared reflectivity spectra in the region of 100 ÷ 2000 cm-1 were obtained in virgin, irradiated by 1500 pulses. The reconstruction of perovskite ABO3 structure in irradiated samples has been studied by complex use of X-ray and neutron scattering and IR spectroscopy techniques revealing the changes in transverse and longitudinal phonon modes. Radiation effects on temperature behavior of dielectric permittivity ε in the region of phase transition were studied. The possible mechanisms of pulsed electron irradiation effect in relaxor PLZT ceramics are discussed.
