Abstract

Switching behavior is a general feature in ferroelectrics. The related fatigue effects influenced by defect dipoles in ferroelectrics are still controversial that is focused on the positive and negative effect of oxygen vacancies. Here, we report the polarization switching behavior of acceptor-doped ceramics using the first-order reversal curve (FORC) approach, especially for the abnormal self-rejuvenation effect and the enhanced fatigue endurance in acceptor-doped ceramics. The reversible and irreversible components under electric field in the ceramics were distinguished by the FORC distribution of ideal “hysteron”. The abnormal self-rejuvenation behavior stemmed from dispersed response of hysteron for undoped samples while from the redistribution of defect dipoles for acceptor-doped samples. The self-rejuvenation was induced only by the irreversible component. For the fatigue effect, the pinning of domain walls was not the main reason. The re-annealing treatment for a fatigued sample weakened the interactions between the spontaneous polarizations and the defect dipoles, but enhanced the dispersion of coercive field. The structure decomposition was another reason for fatigue effect. The enhancement of fatigue endurance comes from the phase stability of structure in acceptor-doped ceramics, while complex phase evolution exists in undoped ceramic with weak fatigue endurance. Our study shed new light on the interactions between spontaneous polarization and defect dipoles under repetitive AC electric field.
