a) Right-hand-side: 180-degree in-plane domains with average polarization ⟨P⟩ = 0 but nonzero average strain ⟨S⟩ (indicated by large arrows); (b) Left-hand-side: 90-degree in-plane domains with average strain ⟨S⟩ = 0 but nonzero average polarization ⟨P⟩, indicated by large arrow. This stress will produce domain wall motion. Both herringbone and closure domain structures produce ⟨S⟩ = ⟨P⟩ = 0.
