Antiferroelectric negative capacitance from a structural phase transition in zirconia

New research paper from 24-person research team from Berkeley, Georgia Tech, MIT, and other institutions. Abstract "Crystalline materials with broken inversion symmetry can exhibit a spontaneous electric polarization, which originates from a microscopic electric dipole moment. Long-range polar or anti-polar order of such permanent dipoles gives rise to ferroelectricity or antiferroelectrici... » read more
