Two publications in the Journal of Materials Science 50th Anniversary Special Issue

The group published two papers in the upcoming 50th Anniversary Special Issue of JMS. Both publications deal with uniques properties of ferroelectric multilayers. Misirlioglu et al. provide theoretical proof that ferroelectric/paraelectric multilayers could potentially be used as low-voltage gate materials. Yomery, Fu-Chang, and Tumerkan show that ferroelectric heterostructures cannot be considered as simple capacitors in series.
