Ferroelectricity discovered on the nanoscale

Ferroelectricity can exist in a sheet of material just a few nanometres thick. This new and unexpected discovery by researchers in the US and South Korea could help in the development of new materials for nanoscale electronics. Ferroelectric materials have permanent electric dipole moments – much like their ferromagnetic counterparts, which have permanent magnetic dipole […]
