Professor Martin and Colleagues “Speed-up” Ferroelectric Switching


 In a recent report in the journal Nature Materials, a Berkeley MSE team including graduate student Ruijuan Xu, postdoctoral researcher Anoop Damodaran, and Professor Lane Martin, together with colleagues form the University of Pennsylvania, have reported on a new type of switching in ferroelectrics. The findings are particularly interesting for two reasons. First, by controlling the […]
