The dynamic dielectric response of Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3 )O3 ceramic was experimentally
studied as a function of the EAC amplitude field. An increase in real dielectric permittivity was
obtained by increasing the applied electrical field within the investigated temperature range
for frequencies below 10 kHz. The temperature of maximum dielectric permittivity and
freezing temperature decreased with an increase in E AC. Nonlinear permittivity was studied
and found to behave similarly to freezing temperature. A statistical model was used to fit the
dielectric dispersion of real dielectric permittivity with temperature and frequency. The results
are discussed in terms of different factors’ contributions to dielectric permittivity under
different EAC field conditions.
