摘要原文
Single crystalline ferroelectric perovskites show a large electrocaloric effect (ECE) at field-induced phase transitions, raising attention to solid-state cooling technology. However, paraelectric-ferroelectric transition temperatures are often too high for practical applications and lower transitions are so far underrepresented in literature. Particularly, the role of thermal hysteresis and field direction on the responses is critical, but not yet fully understood. Using ab initio based coarse-grained molecular dynamics, we show that the polarization changes at zero fields are good descriptors for the field direction dependence of transition temperatures both for BaTiO$_3$ and PbTiO$_3$ even though both materials show different microscopic field coupling. Furthermore, we reveal that the choice of field direction can reduce irreversibilities related to thermal hysteresis and can adjust the temperature windows of large caloric responses. Based on our results we identify favorable temperature- and texturing conditions for polycrystals.
