Abstract

Abstract The symmetry analysis of KD 3(SeO 3) 2:SeO 2 - ESR spectra, in previous publications, is incompatible with C 2h symmetry of the low temperature phase. Such incompatibility motivated a suggestion that KD 3(SeO 3) 2 might go to a pyroelectric phase at low temperature. The present work demonstrates that the correlated rotations of SeO 2 groups, induced in the phase transition, transform according to the representation B 3g of group D 2h, the same symmetry of the order parameter. Therefore, the ESR spectra are in harmony with the symmetry change in the transition D 2h → C 2h and the crystal cannot be pyroelectric.
