Abstract

We report neutron diffuse scattering measurements on a single crystal of 68%Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3- 32%PbTiO3. Strong diffuse scattering is observed at low temperatures. An external field applied along the [001] direction affects the diffuse scattering in the (HK0) plane significantly, suggesting a redistribution occurs between polar nanoregions (PNR) of different polarizations perpendicular to the field. By contrast, the [001] field has no effect on the diffuse scattering in the (HOL) and (0KL) zones.
