In this research, the response of polarization, susceptibility and hysteresis of ferroelectric thin films to the variation of temperature, stress, electric field and the content of non-ferroelectric impurities was addressed through a Monte Carlo simulation.
0 U0 units, finally considering non-ferroelectric impurities (sites in the lattice without dipole) from 0 to 100% concentration.
Figure 4 shows hysteresis loops at different non-ferroelectric impurity percentages from 0 to 40%.
At higher percentages of non-ferroelectric impurities the simulated sample presented critical temperatures very close to absolute zero and insignificant hysteresis areas, meaning a paraelectric behavior.
