Özet

The integrated intensity of the central peak is calculated as a function of temperature in the ferroelectric phase (T < T-C) of nearly stoichiometric LiTaO3. This calculation is performed using the temperature dependence of the order parameter obtained from the mean field theory at temperatures lower than the transition temperature T-C (T-C = 963 K) of this crystal. The calculated values of the order parameter (squared) are fitted to the integrated intensity of the central peaks as observed from the Raman and Brillouin scattering experiments as reported in the literature in the ferroelectric phase of nearly stoichiometric LiTaO3. Our results are in good agreement with the observed behavior of LiTaO3 crystal. Because of the applications of LiTaO3 in several academic disciplines including the material science and thermal science, it is beneficial to investigate dynamic properties of this crystal such as the damping constant, inverse relaxation time and the activation energy as also we studied here.
