Abstract

Nanoscale domains have been formed and detected in ferroelectric polymer thin films using scanning probe techniques. The "erasing" and "rewriting" of local domains are also demonstrated and discussed in this article. The results suggest that ferroelectric polymer is a promising ultrahigh-density information storage medium.
