Control of polarization is a key issue in research on ferroelectrics materials and its possible use for low-consumption electronic devices. A ferroelectric material spontaneously show microscopic domains with different polarization directions to minimize its energy. We showed very low energy electro...

Ferroelectric devices could be an alternative to magnetic based memories for future high-density data storage. Such devices have considerable advantages: they are non-volatile, have fast read-write times, low energy consumption and use realistic voltages. However, before considering future applicati...

An ideal ferroelectric (FE) must be an insulator to show a spontaneous polarization, however, recent theoretical and some experimental work suggests that a ferroelectric state can exist up to a certain critical doping level. Thus the possibility of coexistence of ferroelectricity and d electron occu...
