The intensity of the EPR signal with g = 5.985 arising from a ferric ion - oxygen vacancy defect pair $(Fe^{3+}- V_0)$ in $PbTio_3$, varies with the extent of PbO nonstoichiometry at constant $Fe^{3+}$ content due to an increased oxygen vacancy concentration. In PZT solid solutions, the signal intensity decreases with an increase in Zr. A lower intensity is also noticed for $Fe^{3+}$-V_0$. signals in $PbZro_3$. This behaviour is explained on the basis of PbO nonstoichiometsy arising from independent Pb- and o-vacancies as well as the randomly distributed crystallographic shear (CS) plane defects. The contribution to Pbo nonstoichiometry from CS planes is larger in high zirconium compositions of PZT.
