New directions in ferroelectrics

Ferroelectrics have already impacted scientific research and commercial applications over the century since their discovery. In this Focus issue we overview some new directions that ferroelectric research is following, such as two-dimensional materials, topological phenomena, and hafnia-derived systems.

Ferroelectric dipole moments, as represented by straight arrows, twist around to form closed cylindrical domains in a polar supercrystal.
