Dissemination of IT for the Promotion of Materials Science (DoITPoMS)



After completing this TLP, you should:

  • Be aware of the atomic requirements for ferroelectricity.
  • Understand how this atomic structure leads to spontaneous polarisation, and how this polarisation can be switched.
  • Understand how this polarisation leads to the interesting electrical properties displayed by ferroelectrics.
  • Understand how these properties are made use of in today's technologies.
