Paper Abstract

Several adaptations of the well known thermal-pulse technique for the determination of the spatial distribution of polarization across the film thickness will be discussed, which enable the in-situ investigation of piezo-, pyroelectric, elastic and thermal material properties during i.e. thermal cycles and chemical reactions within one easy- to-use experimental setup. Illustrations of the techniques are given by employing ferroelectric polymers, as well as amorphous, photonics polymers. Pulsed electrothermal techniques are easy-to-use, fast, highly sensitive and reliable, and therefore suitable for opening broad new fields of research in thin film materials characterization.
