Static Domain Patterns



After discussing in some detail the theoretical aspects of properties of domain states and after describing a number of methods to observe domains, we now wish to deal with some real domain structures in single crystals. Several thousands of papers have been published on observations of domain patterns in different kinds of ferroics, offering a large amount of interesting data for materials listed in Chap. 3 and many others. Some of them are just observations as it stands, others were performed with the aim to create situations corresponding to theoretically defined conditions.
