Abstract: Effects of interfacial dislocations on the properties of ferroelectric thin films are investigated, using the dynamic Ginzburg–Landau equation. Our results confirm the existence of a dead layer near the film/substrate interface. Due to the combined effects of the dislocations and the near-surface eigenstrain relaxation, the ferroelectric properties of about one-third of the film volume suffers.
