The identical strings must contain at least one nonzero digit, so that a(n) > 0.  Alonso del Arte, Jun 20 2018

EXAMPLE

The first few squares in binary are: 1, 100, 1001, 10000, 11001, 100100. Thus we see that 100100, which is 36 in decimal, the square of 6, is the first square which is the concatenation of two identical bit patterns, and therefore a(2) = 6.
