Abstract

The interdomain region of a bidomain strucrture formed in 127°-cut lithium niobate single crystals using light annealing has been studied by optical and scanning probe microscopies. A periodic subdomain structure on the 180° macrodomain wall is visualized by piezoresponse force microscopy. The piezoresponse signal (polarization) is shown to be a power-law function of the domain width with an exponent n = 0.53.
