Dipole orientation of the P[VDF-TrFE] co-polymer films: A NEXAFS study — •Dipankar Mandal, Klaus Müller, and Dieter Schmeißer — Brandenburgische Technische Universität Cottbus, Angewandte Physik - Sensorik, Konrad-Wachsmann-Allee 17, 03046 Cottbus, Germany

Ferroelectric properties of copolymers of vinylidene fluoride with trifluoroethylene (P[VDF-TrFE]) has become great deal of interest due to potential use in non volatile memory technology. Permanent dipoles (formed between the alternating hydrogen and fluorine atom within the copolymer) ordering of orientation are crucial for device efficiency. Here we focus on thickness dependence dipole orientation in these co-polymer films. In our systematic studies, we found there is prominent dipole re-orientation effect also for the intrinsic films (~10 nm thickness) before applying the electric field. It is observed after the application of the field, the dipoles re-oriented in opposite direction. Therefore, we conclude that the lowest thickness of the film should have well grown crystalline lamellae structure. As a result, c-axis of crystallites acts as well define manner in plane of the surface and for that reason the b-axis is more free. Because the b-axis is parallel to the polarization direction, it is easy to get a preferred orientation of the dipoles. For thicker films (here up to 100 nm), the average orientation effect is hindered, so a very low re-orientation effect has been observed. For this investigation, we used Near Edge X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy, at the U 49/2-PGM beam line of BESSY-II, Berlin. This work is supported by DFG within SPP1157 (SCHM 745/11-2).
