AbstractSrTiO3 is generally paraelectric with centrosymmetric structure exhibiting unique quantum fluctuation related ferroelectricity. Here we reveal highly polar and periodic polarization waves in SrTiO3 at room temperature, which is stabilized by periodic tensile strains in a sandwiched PbTiO3/SrTiO3/PbTiO3 structure. Scanning transmission electron microscopy reveals that periodic a/c domain structures in PbTiO3 layers exert unique periodic tensile strains in the ultrathin SrTiO3 layer and consequently make the highly polar and periodic states of SrTiO3. The as-received polar SrTiO3 layer features peak polar ion displacement of similar to 0.01 nm and peak tetragonality of similar to 1.07. These peak values are larger than previous results, which are comparable to that of bulk ferroelectric PbTiO3. Our results suggest that it is possible to integrate large and periodic strain state in oxide films with exotic properties, which in turn could be useful in optical applications and information addressing when used as memory unit.
