Abstract

We report on a thermal-expansion study of the ferroelectric phase transition in insulating Sr1-xCaxTiO3 (x = 0.009) and its evolution upon increasing charge-carrier concentration up to n similar or equal to 60 x 10(19) cm(-3). Although electric polarization is screened by mobile charge carriers, we find clear signatures of the ferroelectric phase transition in the thermal-expansion coefficient alpha of the weakly doped metallic samples. Upon increasing n, the transition temperature T-C(n) and the magnitude of the anomalies in alpha rapidly decrease up to a threshold carrier density n* above which broadened anomalies remain present. There is no indication for a sign change of alpha as is expected for a pressure-dependent quantum phase transition with n as the control parameter. Thus, the ferroelectric like transition is either continuously fading away or it transforms to another low-temperature phase above n*, but this change hardly affects the temperature-dependent alpha(T) data.
