- The relaxor behavior of lanthanum modified lead zirconate titanate (PLZT) ferroelectric ceramics, for a La/Zr/Ti ratio of x/60/40, has been analyzed. An approximation to the dynamical behavior of the polar nano-regions (PNRs) has been discussed, taking into account a relaxation model, which considers a distribution function for the relaxation times. A good agreement between theoretical and experimental results was obtained. The behaviors of the mean relaxation time and its standard deviation with temperature were discussed, considering the correlation between the polar nano-regions and the freezing temperature. The temperature dependence of the polarization showed an anomalous behavior around a temperature, which was associated with the freezing temperature, according to the proposed model in the present work.
