Unidentified Phase Transition in Polar Lanthanum Tantalate (LaTaO4)

, , , &
The family of crystals with formula ABX4 represent a very interesting class of ferroelectrics that are extremely two-dimensional. Fluorides have been extensively researched but there is great potential for oxides of this class, such as LaTaO4, due to oxides being favoured for device applications. Studies have reported the evolution of morphologies of LaTaO4 with temperature, but one phase transition at ~200ºC is accompanied by an anomalously small peak in permittivity, which suggests the transition is...
