Title: Domain alignment within ferroelectric/dielectric PbTiO 3 /SrTiO 3 superlattice nanostructures

Abstract

The ferroelectric domain pattern within lithographically defined PbTiO3/SrTiO3ferroelectric/dielectric heteroepitaxial superlattice nanostructures is strongly influenced by the edges of the structures.
