Fully-inverted piezoresponse hysteresis loops mediated by charge injection in 0.29Pb(In1/2Nb1/2)O3–0.44Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3–0.27PbTiO3 single crystals

The domain structure and local switching behavior of ternary relaxor (001) 0.29Pb(In1/2Nb1/2)O3–0.44Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3–0.27PbTiO3single crystals are studied using piezoresponse force microscopy. The as-grown crystals exhibit a labyrinthine domain pattern similar to other relaxor-based ferroelectrics. Abnormally switched domains are observed for both positive and negative tip-voltages, with sign-dependent thresholds and growth rates on the poled crystals. Further piezoresponse hysteresis loop...[Show more]
