AbstractFerroelectric ultrathin films have great potential in electronic devices and device miniaturization with the innovation of technology. In the process of product commercialization, understanding the domain evolution and topological properties of ferroelectrics is a prerequisite for high-density storage devices. In this work, a series of ultrathin PbTiO3 (PTO) films with varying thicknesses were deposited on cubic KTaO3 substrates by pulsed laser deposition and were researched by Cs-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM), reciprocal space mapping (RSM), and piezoresponse force microscopy (PFM). RSM experiments indicate the existence of a/c domains and show that the lattice constant varies continuously, which is further confirmed by atomic-scale STEM imaging. Diffraction contrast analysis clarifies that with the decrease in PTO film thickness, the critical thickness for the formation of a/c domains could be missing. When the thickness of PTO films is less than 6 nm, the domain configurations in the ultrathin PTO films are the coexistence of a/c domains and bowl-like topological structures, where the latter ones were identified as convergent and divergent types of meron. In addition, abundant 90 degrees charged domain walls in these ultrathin PTO films were identified. PFM studies reveal clear ferroelectric properties for these ultrathin PTO films. These results may shed light on further understanding the domain evolution and topological properties in ultrathin ferroelectric PTO films.
