Abstract

Ferroelectric domain engineering became an attractive and perspective tool for development of a new generation of diverse nonlinear optical and acoustic converters. Conventional one-dimensional engineered domain structure represents an array of strip-like domains of a micrometer width. These domains should possess vertical domain walls through the crystal bulk of a few millimeters depth. In fabrication of patterned domain configurations by electrical poling technique, the most critical point is a domain broadening effect. There are several fundamental processes, which play a crucial role in fabrication of domain configurations, such as bulk domain nucleation, domain shapes and anisotropic domain walls propagation.
