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