Colleagues and frequent collaborators Abhijit Pramanick from the City University of Hong Kong and Mads Ry Jørgensen from Aarhus University in Denmark first met during the National School on Neutron and X-Ray Scattering (NXS) in 2008. Their latest project involves applying electric fields and varying temperatures to single-crystal samples using the TOPAZ instrument, SNS beam line 12, to examine how the material’s atoms are displaced under those conditions. They say a better understanding of the material’s behaviors should aid in the development of new relaxor ferroelectric designs with improved properties—and possibly ones that are more ecofriendly, too.
