Ceramic Pb(Fe1–xSc x )2/3W1/3O3 samples with 0 ≤ x ≤ 1 have been prepared and characterized by X-ray diffraction, Mössbauer spectroscopy, and dielectric and pyroelectric measurements. The stoichiometry ranges of the perovskite solid solutions in this system have been identified, their structural parameters have been determined, and their dielectric permittivity, dielectric loss tangent, resistivity, and thermally stimulated depolarization current have been measured as functions of temperature. The composition dependences of the dielectric properties for the solid solutions have been obtained. The solid solutions have been shown to exhibit ferroelectric relaxor properties, with a well-defined maximum in their permittivity in the range 180–250 K.
