Strain induced ferroelectrosity in epitaxial SrTiO3 films
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2001

Microwave performances of planar capacitors formed on epitaxial SrTiO 3 (STO) films reveal that two-dimensional, in-plane strain in the film lead to a formation of a stable non-cubic, low symmetry ferroelectric phase. The residual polarization vector has two stable states, normal to the film surface, and may be switched under applied DC bias. Due to the charges in surface/interface levels, the films may contain either a single or opposing domains
