Ferroelectric Nanowires:an Investigation in Synthesis, Characterization, Functionality, and Modeling of Finite Size Effects

Jin Wang
Ferroelectric perovskites exhibit superior dielectric, piezoelectric and ferroelectric properties. Architecting ferroelectrics in the small scale holds interest in both application and fundamental research. Compared to their 2D counterparts – thin films, ferroelectric nanowires –1D structuresndash; are far less studied. A number of important features of ferroelectric nanowires, such as their piezoelectric activity, domain structure, switching behavior and phase transitions, have not been yet fairly studied, nor understood. In this thesis, we treat central issues in...
