Ferroelectric materials have potential applications in a range of technologies including sensors, actuators, capacitors and transducers. Lead zirconate titanate (PZT) polycrystalline materials have been widely used since their discovery in the 1950’s, since then a large number of lead based ferroelectric materials have been developed.
This Hot Highlight details the recent advances that have been made in lead-based ferroelectric and antiferroelectric single crystals – covering crystal growth, composition and property characterization. You can download the full article below, which is free to access for 4 weeks.
