Values of the expansion coefficients of electrical energy Wc in a series with respect to even powers of polarization Pc are determined using the Landau–Devonshire theory by studying the repolarization dynamics of an Rb2ZnCl4 crystal. Experimental results obtained from the dynamics are compared to theoretical representations of the Landau–Devonshire theory that describe the dependences of Wc(Pc) in statics.
