Abstract

We have observed Electron Beam Induced Current imaging of thin film ferroelectrics. The Electron beam irradiation of a thin ferroelectric film creates a local temperature gradient that induces a polarization gradient and therefore a local electric field. Although the temperature difference is small the gradient is on the order of thousands K/cm and results in a corresponding electric field of a few MV/cm. The thermally induced electric field drives the electron beam created carriers toward an electrode thus inducing an externally measurable current. Despite the very small carrier life time (
