Ferroelectures: A Virtual Lecture Series!

After a successful Ferro2021 workshop, we are excited to announce a series of monthly lectures: Ferroelectures! Each month, we will feature a prominent member of our ferroelectrics community to talk to you about the exciting work happening in their field of study. Each lecture, held via Zoom, will be an hourlong session beginning at 10 a.m. ET. 

Generally lectures will be at 10 a.m. US Eastern Time on the second Thursday of each month. 

The following lectures have been scheduled:

  • April 15, 2021: Emmanuel Defay, Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), “From voltage-driven phase transition towards electrocaloric devices” Video

  • May 13, 2021: David Muller, Cornell University, “New Ways to see polar (and multipolar) order at the atomic scale” Video

  • June 10, 2021: Cyrus Dreyer, Stony Brook University, “Nonadiabatic Born effective charges in metals and the Drude weight” Video

  • July 8, 2021: Dennis Meier, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, “Improper ferroelectrics for sustainable nanotechnology” Video

  • August 12, 2021: Daniel Sando, USW Sydney Australia, "Super-R BiFeO3: Epitaxial stabilization of a low-symmetry phase with enhanced electromechanical response" Video

  • September 9, 2021: Charles PaillardCentrale Supélec/University Paris-Saclay, "Controlling ferroelectric structure with light" Video

  • October 14, 2021: Hongjun Xiang, Department of Physics, Fudan University Property analysis and simulation package for materials (PASP) and its applications to ferroelectrics

  • November 11, 2021: Venkatraman Gopalan, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, and Department of Physics, Pennsylvania State University, Creation and Dynamics of Complex Polar Supertextures by Design
