Twinned domains in ferroelastic systems are intimately coupled to local strain fields. Problematically, in complex oxides this coupling often spans over several orders of magnitude of length scale. State-of-the art characterization techniques, however, either lack spatial resolution or their sensitivity is limited to the surface.
Here we use Dark-field X-Ray Microscopy to map and quantify spatial variations of elastic stress and domain size from nm to several µm in a grain of a polycrystalline ferroelectric/ferroelastic (Ba,Ca)(Zr,Ti)O3 model system as a function of the applied electric field. We find, that the electric field narrows the distribution of elastic stresses by 60%, while the domain size increases by 35%. The suggested methodology can be applied to multiscale correlations in emerging fields in complex oxides and twinned systems.
