Abstract

Tungsten bronze crystals of Pb0.57Ba0.43Nb2O6 composition near the morphotropic phase boundary were examined for possible switching of the polarization vector. It is demonstrated that for the single crystal lead barium niobate of tetragonal symmetry, the polarization vector can be switched orthogonally to an orthorhombic phase simply by the application of an electric field.
