The relation between the interphase boundary velocity and the domain period is established during the interface motion inducing the appearance of the 180° ferroelectric domain structure. These properties are shown to be correlated due to effects of overcooling and superheating. The results are compared with experiment in barium titanate. The effect of release of the latent heat at the phase transition on the interface motion is discussed.
