We use theoretical and computational methods to study the properties of ferroelectric compounds. Among the topics covered are:
  • Ferroelectric and compounds with hydrogen bonds

  • Multiferroics

    • Multiferroic materials have simultaneous ferroelectric, ferromagnetic and/or ferroelastic properties. These materials are investigated based on ab-initio calculations and an atomic-level model that can simultaneously describe the ferroelectric and magnetic properties at finite temperature.
  • Surfaces and Nanostructures.

    • Surface properties and size effects in ferroelectric nanostructures of metal oxides and materials with different functionalities are investigated.
  • Bacterial Photosynthesis.
