Switching kinetics in epitaxial BiFeO3 thin films with different orientations — •Daniel Pantel1, Ying-Hao Chu2, Ramamoorthy Ramesh3, and Marin Alexe11Max-Planck-Institut für Mikrostrukturphysik, Weinberg 2, D-06120 Halle (Saale), Germany — 2Department of Materials Science and Engineering, National Chiao Tung University, Hsinchu, Taiwan 30010, R.O.C. — 3Department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA

Due to simultaneously ferroelectric and antiferromagnetic ordering at room temperature multiferroic BiFeO3 (BFO) is a potential material for magnetoelectric devices. Furthermore, it is a Pb-free ferroelectric with high remnant polarization and therefore a promising candidate for environmental-friendly applications such as non-volatile memories. For all applications understanding of the detailed switching behavior in BFO is essential.

Large timescale (100 ns to 1 s) voltage pulse trains were used to examine the switching kinetics in BFO thin films with (001), (110) and (111) orientations as a function of applied voltage and time. The kinetics are analyzed in terms of Kolmogorov-Avrami-Ishibashi (KAI) theory and compared with standard systems such as epitaxial Pb(Zr0.2Ti0.8)O3 (PZT) films. Likewise in fully c-oriented PZT films, BFO fits well the KAI-model in the high field region, whereas the low field region shows non-KAI kinetics comparable with PZT films with 90  domain walls.
