Advanced Ferroelectricity

Robert Blinc


The field of ferroelectricity has greatly expanded and changed recently. In addition to classical organic and inorganic ferroelectrics as well as composite ferroelectrics new fields and materials have appeared, important for both basic science and application and showing technological promise for novel multifunctional devices. Most of these fields were unknown or inactive 20 to 40 years ago. Such new fields are multiferroic magnetoelectric systems, where the spontaneous polarization and the spontaneous magnetization are allowed to coexist, incommensurate ferroelectrics, where the periodicity o ...

Keywords: ferroelectrics, nanoferroelectrics, magnetoelectrics, relaxors, incommensurate systems, dipolar glasses, giant electrocaloric effects, electromechanical effects
