Domain patterns and macroscopic behaviour of ferroelectric materials


This paper examines the domain patterns and the macroscopic behaviour of single crystals of ferroelectric material using a theory based on energy minimization. A low-energy path is identified for domain switching and a novel configuration that yields very large electrostriction is identified.
