Garcia-Melendrez, A and Durkan, C (2013) Reversible nanoscale switching of polytwin orientation in a ferroelectric thin film induced by a local electric field. Applied Physics Letters, 103. ISSN 0003-6951Full text not available from this repository.
The response to a local, tip-induced electric field of ferroelastic domains in thin polycrystalline lead zirconate titanate films with predominantly (110) orientation has been studied using Enhanced Piezoresponse Force Microscopy. Two types of reversible polytwin switching between well-defined orientations have been observed. When a-c domains are switched to other forms of a-c domains, the ferroelastic domain walls rotate in-plane by 109.5°, and when a-c domains are switched to c-c domains (or vice-versa), the walls rotate by 54.75°. © 2013 AIP Publishing LLC.
