Raman Spectroscopic measurements are carried out to investigate the structural phase transitions as a function of composition in modified sodium niobate [(1-x) NaNbO3-xBaTiO3:NNBTx] for x=0.0 to 0.15 at room temperature. The characteristic antiferroelectric modes at around 93.4 and 123.6cm-1alongwith a mode at 155.5 cm-1were found to disappear across the structural phase transition from antiferroelectric orthorhombic phase (Pbcm) to ferroelectric orthorhombic phase (Pmc21) phase for x>0.02... The redistribution of intensities and positions of the Raman lines in bending (150-350 cm-1) and stretching modes (>550cm-1) on increasing the concentration x>0.05 also confirms the occurrence of another phase transition from ferroelectric orthorhombic phase (Pmc21) to another ferroelectric orthorhombic phase (Amm2) phase across x~0.10.The phase transitions as observed from Raman measurements are consistent with previous x-ray diffraction study. read more
