The effect of $$B$$-site randomness on the antiferroelectric/relaxor nature of the ground state was investigated by studying diffuse and inelastic X-ray scattering from ordered and disordered Pb(In$$_{1/2}$$Nb$$_{1/2}$$)O$$_3$$ (O- and D-PIN) single crystals. The diffuse scattering measurement of O-PIN (antiferroelectric at $$T<T_N$$) shows the existence of ferroelectrically interactive local polarization above $$T_N$$. Inelastic X-ray scattering shows that the transverse-acoustic (TA) and transverse-optic (TO) modes are dominant at $$Tsim$$800 K, while the central peak (CP) and TA modes are coupled and majorly contribute to the critical behavior of the diffuse scattering at $$T_N$$. Upon these results, the $$B$$-site randomness is discussed in terms of suppressing the antiferroelectric instability and enhancing the polarization fluctuation.
