Abstract: The electric dipole configuration and dielectric susceptibility of a Ginzburg-Landau model ferroelectric lattice with randomly distributed defects are simulated using the Monte Carlo method. The simulated characteristics of the lattice configuration and dielectric susceptibility indicate that the model lattice evolves from a normal ferroelectric state to a typical relaxor state with increasing defect concentration. Consequently, the energy and dielectric susceptibility characteristics associated with the ferroelectric phase transitions become smeared. The simulated results approve the applicability of the Ginzburg-Landau model in approaching relaxor ferroelectrics.
