Double-loop electric-field vs polarization hysteresis is investigated in a depoled compositionally disordered lithium-enriched potassium tantalate niobate crystal. Comparing electro-optic response and dielectric spectroscopy indicates that the anomalous response occurs for those temperatures in which the sample also manifests a temperature hysteresis in the low-frequency dielectric function.

Abstract

Double-loop electric-field vs polarization hysteresis is investigated in a depoled compositionally disordered lithium-enriched potassium tantalate niobate crystal. Comparing electro-optic response and dielectric spectroscopy indicates that the anomalous response occurs for those temperatures in which the sample also manifests a temperature hysteresis in the low-frequency dielectric function. An electric-field hysteresis at concurrent temperatures suggests an underlying role of reorienting mesoscopic polar regions that accompany the nonergodic phase.
