Visualization of ferroelectric domains in bulk single crystals

  • E. Soergel
Invited paper


In recent years ferroelectric domain patterning has become a popular topic of physical research because it enables photonic applications as well as data storage. For generation of tailored domain structures and for further understanding of ferroelectricity, a visualization of the domain patterns is required. A large number of imaging techniques have therefore been developed. This review summarizes these techniques and highlights systematically their strengths and weaknesses.
