Abstract

Ferroelectric (FE), ferromagnetic (FM), and multiferroic phases are low-temperature lattice-deformed or/and spin-ordering phase through structural phase transition. Here, relaxor-FE and parasitic FM structural phase transitions with both ordering temperatures above 180 °C were observed in the A(Zn1/2Ti1/2)O3-modified BiFeO3–SrTiO3 (A = Bi, La) perovskite-structured ternary solid solution ceramics. Their ferroic polarization and magnetization switching properties were also observed at room temperature and demonstrated to be multiferroic compound.
