Nucleation and growth of periodic domains during electric field poling in flux-grown KTiOPO4 observed by atomic force microscopy
2006 (English)In: Applied Physics Letters, ISSN 0003-6951, E-ISSN 1077-3118, Vol. 88, no 3, 032905-1-032905-3 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The domain structure of periodically poled KTiOPO4 crystals were studied on both the polar and nonpolar faces utilizing a voltage-modulated atomic force microscope. The measurements give information of domain nucleation, growth, and merging. Two different kind of overpoling behaviors have been observed depending on the magnitude of the applied field.
