Nanomechanics of Ferroelectric Thin Films and Heterostructures

  title={Nanomechanics of Ferroelectric Thin Films and Heterostructures},
  author={Yunzhou Li and Shengyang Hu and Long-qing Chen},
The focus of this chapter is to provide basic concepts of how externally applied stresses and strains alter the ferroelectric properties of a material and how to quantitatively evaluate these effects on the phase stability, domain structure, and material properties of ferroelectrics using the phase field method. The chapter starts with a brief introduction of ferroelectrics and the Landau–Devonshire description of ferroelectric transitions and ferroelectric phases in a homogeneous ferroelectric… CONTINUE READING
