Title: Orientation-resolved domain mapping in tetragonal SrTiO 3 using polarized Raman spectroscopy

Here, we present microscopically resolved, polarized spectroscopy of Raman scattering collected from tetragonal SrTiO 3. The anisotropic response of first-order Raman peaks within a single tetragonal domain has been measured. From these data, we assign symmetries to the phonons seen in the first-order Raman spectrum which is normally complicated by uncontrolled domain structure. Using a translation stage, we map the local domain orientation of a 3–μm 3 crystal volume near the laser focus and compare it to wide-field polarized images. This technique can be performed with readily available instruments and is relevant to the study of a wide range of related materials, interfaces, and devices.
