    Abstract

    The crystallographic structure and lattice strain in soft lead zirconate ceramics were investigated using high energy synchrotron x-ray diffraction measurements. It was found that the lattice spacing and the intensity ratio varied linearly as a function of sin2ψ, for the tetragonal phase, where ψ being the angle between the plane normal and the macroscopic polar axis. The tetragonal and rhombohedral plane spacings monitored the intergrannular stress. These tetragonal and rhombohedral reflections were found to be sensitive only to the macrostrain of the polycrystal.
