Abstract

The longitudinal acoustic wave velocity and attenuation in BiFeO3 ceramics have been measured by ultrasonic pulse-echo technique at a frequency of 10 MHz in the temperature range from 4.2 K to 830 K. The anomalies observed in the sound velocity and attenuation behavior versus temperature are attributed to the assumed relaxation in the temperature range 200–500 K and antiferromagnetic phase transition at higher temperatures. Order parameter fluctuations along with magnetostriction are discussed as the factors determining the acoustic wave velocity anomaly in the vicinity of the antiferromagnetic phase transition point.
