Abstract: The fast dynamic evolution of ferroelectric domains during electric field poling in flux grown KTiOPO4 crystals was investigated online by a digital holography based technique. The dependence of the ferroelectric domain kinetics on the electric field temporal wave form and poling history was studied. High-speed imaging by means of a complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor image sensor camera allowed in situ measurement of the domain wall propagation speed under different poling conditions. The results also give evidence of the strong influence of the dielectric surface layer in this material.
