This enabled a ferroelectric hysteresis loop to be drawn, from which the remanent polarization and coercive field could be determined.
Experimentally, Wondsamnern [14] characterized ferroelectric hysteresis loops of PZT ceramics, observing the influence of external stress and temperature in an inverse relation of these variables with the hysteresis area.
