Pressure-dependent powder x-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, and dielectric constant measurements are performed on 0.65 BiFeO3-0.35 PbTiO3. Four structural transitions are reported in 0-34 GPa range. The transitions are observed at 0.7(1), 0.8(1), 3.4(1), and 6.1(1) GPa, where the system transformed from ambient tetragonal P4mm to a mixed phase of tetragonal and rhombohedral (P4mm + R3c), followed by transition to rhombohedral R3c, cubic Pm3m and again to rhombohedral R3c structure, respectively. The transformation to the cubic structure coincides with the ferroelectric-paraelectric transition. Higher-pressure cubic-to-rhombohedral transition shows a slight softening of Raman modes along with an enhancement in spontaneous strain. The high-pressure rhombohedral phase shows signatures of another ferroic transition.
