Scanning force microscopy was used to form nanometer-scale domains in P(VDF/TrFE) thin films by applying voltage pulses between a gold-coated cantilever and a conductive substrate. We demonstrated that a domain can be switched by applying a voltage with the opposite polarity. These results indicate that this ferroelectric copolymer is a promising material for high-density data storage.
