Abstract: The structural long-range B-site ordered domains and dielectric properties of the as-sintered and postannealed ceramics (0.4)Pb(In₁/₂Nb₁/₂)O₃:(0.6)Pb(Mg₁/₃Nb₂/₃)O₃ have been characterized. Transmission electron microscopy studies show an increase in the size of the ordered domains following annealing. In the low-field dielectric measurements, the longer the annealing time, the narrower is the diffuse phase transition. A high-temperature dielectric anomaly at low frequency in the as-sintered sample significantly weakens following postannealing. The annealed samples retained their exceptionally slim ferroelectric hysteresis loops.
