  • The generation of functional interfaces such as superconducting and ferroelectric twin boundaries requires new ways to nucleate as many interfaces as possible in bulk materials and thin films. Materials with high densities of twin boundaries are often ferroelastics and martensites. In this review, we show that the nucleation and propagation of twin boundaries depend sensitively on temperature and system size. Sudden changes of the domain pattern manifest themselves as avalanches or “jerks” in… CONTINUE READING
