The use of domain stability maps for epitaxial perovskite ferroelectric films is illustrated with some examples. The equilibrium domain structure and domain fractions as a function of temperature are predicted for PbTiO_3(001) films grown epitaxially on three different substrates: MgO(001), KTaO_3(001), and SrTiO_3(001). Misfit dislocation formation at the growth temperature is found to have a profound effect on both the domain selection and relative domain populations. Theoretical predictions are compared with available experimental data.
