Local structural distortion of BaZrxTi1−xO3nanocrystals synthesized at room temperature

Author affiliations

Abstract

Single crystalline, sub-15 nm BaZrxTi1−xO3 (0 ≤ x ≤ 1) nanocrystals were synthesized at room temperature via the vapor diffusion sol–gel method. As-prepared nanocrystals exhibit noncentrosymmetric regions whose volume fraction increases significantly upon substitution of small amounts of Zr4+ for Ti4+ and reaches a maximum for substitution levels ranging from 10 to 20 mol%.
