Synthesis, Characterization, Properties, and Applications of Nanosized Ferroelectric, Ferromagnetic, or Multiferroic Materials

Description

Recently, there has been an enormous increase in research activity in the field of ferroelectric, ferromagnetic, especially multiferroic materials which possess both ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties simultaneously. However, the ferroelectric, ferromagnetic, and multiferroic properties should be further improved from the utilitarian and commercial viewpoints.

Nanostructural materials are central to the evolution of future electronics and information technologies. Ferroelectrics and ferromagnetics have already been established as a dominant branch in electronics sector because of their diverse applications. The on-going dimensional downscaling of materials to allow packing of increased numbers of components into integrated circuits provides the momentum for evolution of nanostructural devices. Nanoscaling of the above materials can result in modification of their functionality. Furthermore, nanoscaling can be used to form high density arrays of nanodomain nanostructures, which is desirable for miniaturization of devices. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Research breakthrough in the fabrication
  • Characterization, and applications of nanoscale ferroelectric/ferromagnetic/multiferroic materials

To achieve this purpose, we cordially invite investigators to contribute original research/review articles that will stimulate further activities in this area and improve our understanding of the key scientific problems in nanosized ferroelectric/ferromagnetic/multiferroic materials. We are particularly interested in articles describing the new methods for the synthesis of nanosized materials with novel morphology, exposed active facets, and nanoporous structures, which may greatly benefit their performance.
