Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ferroelectrics and multiferroics have recently emerged as perspective materials for information technology and data storage applications, as well as ideal model platforms for studying polarization-mediated phenomena on surfaces and interfaces. Fundamental studies of polarization dynamics and coupling between polarization and other functional properties requires these to be studied on the nanoscale using either material confinement in the form of thin films, nanowires, and nanodots, or field confinement by an SPM probe. This issue of Materials aims to summarize recent advances in ferroelectric and piezoelectric materials on the nanoscale, with the coverage ranging from synthesis, growth, and patterning, to nanofabrication and device fabrication. The contribution on recent advances in characterization both using SPM based methods as well as scattering and nanodevice structures are particularly welcome. Finally, we aim to broadly represent the less-conventional applications of ferroelectric and electromechanically active materials – from biologic piezo- and ferroelectrics to energy harvesting systems.
