The temperature-versus-misfit-strain phase diagram of Pb(Zr,Ti)O 3 ultrathin films under open-circuit electrical boundary conditions is simulated via the use of an effective Hamiltonian. Two novel phases, both exhibiting dipolar nanodomains and oxygen octahedral tilting, are discovered. The interplay between dipolar, antiferrodistortive, alloying, and strain degrees of freedom induces several striking features in these two phases, such as the chemical pinning of domain walls, the enhancement of oxygen octahedral tilting near the domain walls, and the existence of dipolar waves and cylindrical dipolar chiral bubbles. © 2011 American Physical Society.

The multidomain structure evolution in Pb(Zr,Ti)O 3 ultrathin films subject to an electric field applied along the pseudocubic [111] direction is investigated via the use of an effective Hamiltonian. Varying the magnitude of this electric field (that possesses both in-plane and out-of-plane components) leads to the formation of five different states, whose microstructures and properties are revealed here. Such variation also makes the polarization changing not only in magnitude but also in direction. The field-induced correlation between the polar distortions and the oxygen octahedral tilting is also discussed as an important factor affecting the polarization. © 2012 American Physical Society.
