The mechanical spectra of Pr1-xSrxFeO3-δ (x=0.5, 0.55, and 0.6) ceramics were performed at kHz frequencies from 100 to 350K. An internal friction (IF) peak associated with modulus defect around 130K and a modulus kink at 200K were observed. This IF peak temperature shows frequency-dispersive behavior. The dielectric spectra and magnetization measurements were used to clarify the origin of the anomaly in IF and modulus. The dielectric spectra provide clear evidence for the relaxation behavior of IF peak and the activation energies of 0.14, 0.13, and 0.11eV were derived from the Arrhenius law for Pr0.5Sr0.5FeO3, Pr0.45Sr0.55FeO3, and Pr0.4Sr0.6FeO3 samples, respectively. The relaxation behavior is ascribed to the charge-carrier hopping between Fe3+ and Fe4+. Furthermore, the magnetization measurement confirms that the kink in the reduced Young's modulus is associated with a spin-glass transition. In addition, another dielectric anomaly at 200K may be related to the magneto dielectric effect. © 2014 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
