Anomalous vertical scanning was observed along polarization direction in ferroelectric strontium barium niobate 60 (SBN:60) crystal, which was successfully tested up to a 2 kHz frequency. Such vertical scanning angles varied from sample to sample, as well as domain reversal history. A 2-D scanner system was also successfully demonstrated by combining a lithium tantalate based horizontal scanner and a SBN:60 based vertical scanner.
