With the use of the modified Sawyer-Tower scheme and Merz technique, studies were conducted on the repolarization characteristics of ferroelectric (BaZrO3/BaTiO3) superlattices on monocrystalline MgO substrate. Studies of temperature changes in the dielectric hysteresis loops indicated a sufficiently smooth decrease in spontaneous polarization compared with homogeneous barium titanate near the phase transition temperature of the superlattice. Experimental studies of switched currents have shown that the switching processes in the synthesized superlattices are implemented in two stages: activation motion (''creep'' mode) and non-activation motion (slip mode). The presence of the activation switching stage and the numerical estimates show that with high probability, the movement of domain boundaries accomplishes the processes of switching in the studied superlattice. The threshold field separating the stated stages decreases with increasing temperature up to the Curie point of the superlattice, similar to the coercive field. Detection of the non-strictly exponential dependence of the switching current on the reverse field strength in the activation stage was modulated by the dependence with the power-law exponent for the applied electric field. Both techniques indicate that the studied superlattices have a small internal displacement field directed from the superlattice to the substrate.
