Abstract

A self-consistent two-dimensional model of polarization switching in polycrystalline ferroelectrics is developed. It accounts for the statistical distribution of the local switching times due to the random spatial field distribution as well as for the feedback effect of the depolarization field changing during the switching process. Thereby the polarization response of each single-crystalline grain is modeled in the spirit of the Kolmogorov-Avrami-Ishibashi model while the electric field in the system is evaluated by a finite-element method at every iteration step. The results exhibit fair agreement with experiments on bulk ferroelectrics.
