Abstract

The microscopic domain structures in 2D ferroelectrics under applied biaxial strains are investigated using a phase field model based on the time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau equation that takes both long-range electric and -elastic interactions into account, The stable polarization patterns are simulated at different temperatures and applied inequiaxial strains. The results show that the ferroelectrics transfer from multi-domain state to single-domain state when temperature surpasses a critical value, On the other hand, the macroscopic equilibrium polarization states are also studied through a nonlinear thermodynamic theory. The corresponding transition from a1a 2 state (P1 ≠ 0, P2 ≠ 0) to a1 state (P1 ≠ 0, P2 = 0) or a2 state (P 2 ≠ 0, P1 = 0) is also found from the "strain-strain-temperature" phase diagram, which is constructed by minimizing Helmholtz free energy.
