Domain Wall Orientations in Ferroelectric Superlattices Probed with Synchrotron X-Ray Diffraction.

Ferroelectric domains in PbTiO_{3}/SrTiO_{3} superlattices are studied using synchrotron x-ray diffraction. Macroscopic measurements reveal a change in the preferential domain wall orientation from {100} to {110} crystallographic planes with increasing temperature. The temperature range of this reorientation depends on the ferroelectric layer thickness and… CONTINUE READING
