Abstract: The phase diagrams of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) and its copolymers with chlorotrifluoroethylene (CTFE) are investigated by first-principles calculations. Both PVDF and dilute P(VDF-CTFE) prefer nonpolar structures at zero field, but transform to a polar phase below the breakdown field. The critical field decreased with increasing CTFE content, facilitating the transformation. In disordered P(VDF-CTFE), a distribution of concentrations leads to a range of polar transitions, resulting in ultrahigh energy density. These results explain well experimental observations of very high-energy density in P(VDF-CTFE).
