Abstract

A computational model for investigating domain switching and macroscopic electromechanical properties of ferroelectric materials is developed. Various aspects of domain nucleation and growth, and their effects on macroscopic hysteresis are examined. The model is validated against recent experimental observations. It is thus validated as a design tool to investigate various aspects of a novel thin film ferroelectric microactuator in future work.
