Three-dimensional ferroelectric domain visualization by Cerenkov-type second harmonic generation

Sheng, Yan; Best, Andreas; Butt, Hans-Jürgen; Arie, Ady; Koynov, Kaloian; Krolikowski, Wieslaw


We show that focusing a laser light onto the boundary between antiparallel ferroelectric domains leads to the non-collinear generation of two second harmonic (SH) beams. The beams are emitted in a plane normal to the domain boundaries at the angles that satisfy the Cerenkov-type phase matching condition. Moreover, these beam disappear when the laser light is focused on a homogenous part of a single domain. We utilize this effect for 3-dimensional visualization of fine details of the...[Show more]
