Abstract

The size effects on the successive phase transition of lanthanum doped ferroelectric bismuth titanate Bi3.5La0.5Ti 3O12 (BLT) nano-particles have been investigated. A dielectric anomaly appears around 520°C for all the size of nano-particles, corresponds to the low temperature monoclinic to orthorhombic phase transition that remains unaffected by the decrease of particle size. The optical soft phonons show a considerable broadening due to the reduction of particle size and completely overdamped below 34 nm. These results demonstrate a size induced ferroelectric orthorhombic to paraelectric tetragonal phase transition. It is confirmed by the temperature-dependence of the soft optical phonon that the first order displacive nature of the orthorhombic to tetragonal phase transition is hold even in nano-system.
