Domain Walls: From Fundamental Properties to Nanotechnology Concepts

Dennis Meier, Jan Seidel, Marty Gregg, and Ramamoorthy Ramesh

Abstract

Technological evolution and revolution are both driven by the discovery of new functionalities, new materials and the design of yet smaller, faster, and more energy-efficient components. Progress is being made at a breathtaking pace, stimulated by the rapidly growing demand for more powerful and readily available information technology. High-speed internet and data-streaming, home automation, tablets and smartphones are now ‘necessities’ for our everyday lives. Consumer expectations for progressively more data storage and exchange appear to be insatiable. In this context, ferroic domain walls ... More

Keywords: nano-technology, nanoelectronics, ferroic domain walls, data storage, data exchange, 2D systems, flexible circuitry
