Symmetry Breaking in the Perovskite SrTiO3


Symmetry Breaking in the Perovskite SrTiO3

Logo for Symmetry Breaking in the Perovskite SrTiO3
The simulation shows distortion of the strontium titanate perovskite crystal structure below a critical temperature. The second order phase transition created by oxygen plane rotation is shown with changes in entropy and Gibbs free energy plots.
