ferroelectric domain orientation

The best of both worlds—ferroelectric crystals exhibit both high transparency and piezoelectricity

By Lisa McDonald / February 7, 2020

Previous attempts to increase transparency of ferroelectric crystals have decreased piezoelectricity. An international team of scientists led by The Pennsylvania State University and Xi’an Jiaotong University now shows that selective engineering of domain walls can improve both properties.
