The formation of polycrystalline macro-domains by self-organization of ferroelectric grains was studied. It was observed that if the phase transformation is accompanied by lowering the crystal symmetry and the product phase forms variants with different orientations with different self-strain. Incase of polycrystals the formation of polydomains was observed with transformation of grains. The issues related to formation of interactions between the convex and concave sides of a bent crystals were also discussed.
