A Way to Design Diaelectric Materials    [PDF]

Yi-Neng Huang, Xing-Yu Zhao, Li-Li Zhang, Xin-Ru Huang
Considering the coupling between electric polarization and crystal lattice in ferroelectrics, the authors propose a new molecular field theory. It not only includes the classical Weiss Molecular field (WMF), but also the spontaneous distortion inducted molecular field (SDIMF). This theory tells us that diaelectric state will appear in ferroelectrics when the direction of SDIMF is opposite to WMF and its strength is strong enough. In other words, we found a way to design diaelectric materials (diaelectrics). Besides, the theory also predicts the appearance of large static dielectric constant state in ferroelectric phase, when the SDIMF and WMF are in opposite direction but the SDIMF strength is relative small. This is definitely valuable in mentoring the design of new relevant materials.
