Zr and Ti K-edge XANES spectra of PbZrO3, PbTiO3 and BaTiO3 perovskite-type compounds were measured in the temperature range from 10K to 850K. Quantitative comparisons for the near-edge spectra were performed in a wide temperature range using the absorption intensity invariant point (AIIP) standardization. Clear temperature dependence for pre-edge shoulder is identified by the calculating the temperature difference of the XANES spectrum intensity. Decrease of pre-edge shoulder and peak intensity is observed only in the para- and ferro-electric phases and draw curves, not straight lines. The gradients for shoulder and pre-edge peak intensity are rich in a variety. The decrease in absorption of pre-edge peak and shoulder is speculated due to the shift from the off-centre position of the Zr atom with respect to the oxygen octahedron to center position. The Zr ion in the PbZrO3 para-electric phase has same temperature behaviors of Ti ions in the ferroelectric perovskite.
