Scanning Nonlinear Dielectric Microscopy (SNDM) is the method for observing ferroelectric polarization distribution, and now, its resolution has become to the sub-nanometer order, which is much higher than other scanning probe microscopy (SPM) methods for the same purpose. Up to now, we have studied high-density ferroelectric data storage using this microscopy. In this study, we have conducted fundamental experiments of nano-sized inverted domain formation in LiTaO3 single, and successfully formed inverted dot array with the density of 1.5 Tbit/inch2.
