Paper Abstract

This article reveals the problem of electron transport as well as charging effect analysis in ferroelectrics subjected to electron beam irradiation at diagnostics with scanning electron microscope (SEM) techniques. The parameters of the electron irradiation doze and source function were estimated by means of 3D-Monte-Carlo simulation of electron trajectories in the solid specimen. The computation data were demonstrated for typical ferroelectrics irradiated by intermediate-energy electron bunches (10-40 keV). The modification of reaction-diffusion model was also presented to evaluate the electron beam-induced charging dynamics in ferroelectrics. The simulation was based on the joint numerical solution of the continuity equation and Poisson equation taking into account the intrinsic radiation-induced diffusion processes. The findings from this study enable demonstrating charge distribution, dynamics of the potential distribution, electric field components and electron beam-induced component of polarization at assigned parameters relative to experimental condition of reversal process of domain structure in electron beam-irradiated ferroelectrics.
