Ferroelectric and mutiferroic study of bismuth ferrite from the viewpoint of materials science

Chapter


Abstract


  • Ferroelectric and mutiferroic materials have been studied from the viewpoint of pure

    and applied physics. For the applications, a study from the viewpoint of materials science

    will be important in the future. Examples of materials science study are substitution of

    elements, selection of substrate in thin films and in-situ observation. Nano-scale domain

    configurations of multiferroic BiFeO3 thin films and their dynamic response to the

    externally applied fields have been investigated by piezoresponse force microscopy.

    High-resolution piezoresponse images reveal that nano-scale domain walls are

    approximately with ~2 nm in width. In this article, we focus on BiFeO3 as mutiferroic

    materials and as ferroelectric materials. We will present our results about electric and

    magnetic properties, and scanning probe microscopy observations. Local polarization

    reversal and retention behavior will also be presented and discussed.
