Symmetry Breaking in the Perovskite SrTiO3

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.
