Mapping Polarization of Ferroelectric Materials

February 28, 2013
At the atomic scale, engineering researchers at the University of Michigan (U-M) have for the first time, mapped the polarization of a cutting-edge material for memory chips. The researchers found a way to improve the performance of ferroelectric materials. To learn more about this research, which was funded in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation (DMR 07-23032), see the U-M news story Fundamental discovery could lead to better memory chips.
