Abstract

Time-resolved x-ray diffraction techniques are used to visualize atomic-scale displacements within the unit cell of the nanoscale ferroelectric PbTiO3. A picosecond alloptically- induced polarization modulation is observed, associated with a large-amplitude carrierinduced increase in the polarization.
