Abstract

Greens function theory (time-temperature dependent) have been modified with PLCM (pseudo spin lattice coupled mode) and ISING spin model of ferroelectrics in renormalized boundary condition of polarization with third, fourth and fifth order phonon anharmonic interaction as well as electric field terms for second order phase transition in Triglycine Sulphate (TGS) and Triglycine Selenate (TGSe).

#### Key words: Greens function, two sub-lattice conditions, normalized wave function, and perturbation theory etc.

Introduction

In 1960, at first time zubarev proposed a Greens function [1] theory as a solution of inhomogenouse eigen function and eigen values of the crystal lattice. Afterward V. Ramakrishana et al [2] used Greens function theory in study of Potassium Di-hydrogen Phosphate (KDP) crystal. We also have modified same green function theory and implemented over Triglycine Sulphate (TGS), Triglycine Selenate (TGSe) and their deuterated crystals with PLCM [3,4,5] (pseudo spin lattice coupled mode) and ISING

spin model. Substitute model values from different literature and calculate different physical constants of Triglycine Sulphate (TGS), Triglycine Selenate (TGSe) and their deuterated crystal. So during our study, we convert all theoretical properties of crystal into mathematical terms/equations and then solve these mathematical terms/equations and calculate different values. Each derived values gives a theoretical shape of properties of crystal structure and then easily we can predict about crystal behavior. We also check our predictions over experimental verification.

1.1. Crystal Study

Ferroelectric materials has an important role in modern technologies like computing technology, sensor technology, nano technology etc.. Among these ferroelectric material Triglycine Sulphate crystal (TGS), Triglycine Selenate (TGSe) and deuterated crystals are very famous because of its wide range of characteristics suitable for technological purpose. In this we are studying about

the properties of Triglycine Sulphate crystal (TGS) type crystals by a theoretical method which is a combination of two different models i.e. PLCM (Pseudo spin lattice coupled mode) and ISING spin model of ferroelectrics. We have extended PLCM model with third, fourth and fifth order and harmonics interaction terms while for better adjustment with ISING spin model, we have diverted pseudo spin values of proton to phase transition condition or polarization changes. Triglycine sulphate (CH2NH2COOH)3 H2SO4, Deuterated Triglycine sulphate (CD2ND2COOD)3 D2SO4 and Triglycine Selenate (CH2NH2COOH)3 H2SeO4, Deuterated Triglycine Selenate (CD2ND2COOD)3 D2SeO4 crystals are the best pyroelectric materials, whose large crystals can be easily grown from water solution. These two crystals have nearly similar basic characteristics for example these crystals are uniaxial ferroelectric crystal with transition temperature 322K and 295K respectively. Crystals are monoclinic in both polar and non-polar phases. After transition mirror plane disappears and the crystal belongs to isostructural transition. Mathias, Miller and Remeika

discovered ferroelectric behaviour of Triglycine Sulphate (TGS), Triglycine Selenate its deuteerated crystals.

Hoshino et al [8] have carried out X-ray diffraction studies on triglycine sulphate crystal. Pasalov et al [9] have made hysteresis loop measurements in triglycine sulphate crystals. Costache et al [10] have made pyroelectric studies on pure and doped triglycine sulphate crystal. Hill and Ichiki [11] have made polarization relaxation studies on triglycine sulphate crystal. Sreekumar and Philips [12] have made ultrasonic attenuation studies on triglycine sulphate crystal. Lal and Batra [13] have characterization studies on pure and doped triglycine sulphate crystal. Bye et al [14] have measured dielectric constant and polarization of triglycine sulphate crystal in presence of electric field. Imai and Ishida [15] have measured polarization of doped triglycine sulphate crystal in Presence of electric field.Later on Tello and Hernandez [16] have applied tunneling model.

Discussion

After solving all the mathematical derivations we have plot different graphs (graphs no. 1 to 4) for different constants of TGS, TGSe and its deuterated crystals. our modified (PLCM) Pseudo spin lattices coupled mode model (two sub lattice mode as well as third, fourth and fifth order phonon anharmonic interaction terms and electric field terms) and ISING spin model with Greens function theory (double time-temperature dependent) for triglycine sulphate (TGS) type crystal gives different expressions for shift, width, soft mode frequency, dielectric constant, loss tangent, acoustic attenuation, quality factor, ratio figure of merits and electric conductivity by using model values, given by Chaudhuri et al [4] and Gonzalo et al [6]. Previous researcher [3,5] have not considered phonon anharmonic interactions, as well as two sublattice model only chaudhuri et al [4] have considered the two sublattice pseudospin lattice coupled mode model with third, fourth and fifth order phonon anharmonic interaction terms but even not in

a convincing way as they have decoupled the correlations at an early stage. As a result, some important interactions disappeared from the calculations and width as well as shift are calculated, if these are neglected from our results, these at once reduce to the results of Chaudhuri et al. Previous researchers have not calculated the effect of electric field on soft mode frequency, dielectric constant, tangent loss, attenuation constant of TGS type crystal. This theoretical study about dielectric, acoustic, thermal and electric behavior of TGS crystal shows very interesting results which have a very balanced relation with experimental data. Theoretically at phase transition in ferroelectrics the soft mode frequency should be zero at transition temperature (TC), though in external biasing slightly increase. Dielectric constant of these crystals are in order of >104 which is very high at TC while in external biasing reduces gradually at Tc and corresponding energy loss increases at Tc and decreases in external biasing. All theoretical data have a good agreement with experimental results. [T Iglesias et al [31], Bye et al [14], Hill and Ichiki et al [11], Shreekumar et al [12]. Although in external biasing the curies temperature (TC) slightly decreases.

#### Conclusions

In present study, (PLCM) two sub lattice pseudo spin-lattice coupled mode model and ISING spin model of ferroelectrics with double time-temperature dependent Greens function theory predict a true characteristics of TGS, TGSe and its deuterated crystals and indirectly suggest the technological importance of the crystal like computing technology, sensor technology, nano technology and food technology etc. On the bases of applicability of this method it can be applied over any other hydrogen bonded crystal such that PbHPO4, C4O4H2, KDP (KH2PO4) and Rochelle salt (NaKC4H4O6. 4H2O) etcs.

#### Future Aspect

We are trying to explain about lattice dynamics in photo sensitive effect and liquid state properties of TGS crystal by the same method.
