Investigation of the Tricritical Point of KDP under Pressure
KDP was investigated recently by Schmidt et al.1, using static dielectric measurements under pressures up to 3 kbar. The ferroelectric phase transformation which is first order at ambient pressure was found to be second-order at a pressure of 3 kbar.
