      Article
      Open Access
      The origins of high piezoelectric properties in the lead-free (K,Na)NbO3-based tetragonal composition (K0.44Na0.52Li0.04)(Nb0.86Ta0.10Sb0.04)O3 (KNL-NTS) is investigated by quantifying the intrinsic and extrinsic contributions ...
    • Ferroelectric domain engineering by focused infrared femtosecond pulses 

      Chen, Xin; Karpinski, Pawel; Shvedov, Vladlen; Koynov, Kaloian; Wang, Bingxia; Trull Silvestre, José Francisco; Cojocaru, Crina; Krolikowski, Wieslaw; Sheng, Yan (2015-10-05)
      Article
      Open Access
      We demonstrate infrared femtosecond laser-induced inversion of ferroelectric domains. This process can be realised solely by using tightly focused laser pulses without application of any electric field prior to, in conjunction ...
    • Ferroelectric materials for photovoltaics 

      Vázquez Calvo, Diego (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-09-07)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Ferroelectric photovoltaic has been intensively studied during the last years due to possible high efficient charge separation by presence of an internal electric field. Ferroelectric materials show permanent electrical ...
    • Frequency doubling in SBN crystal affected by poling and thermal treatment

      Master thesis
      Open Access
      The random anti-parallel micro-ferroelectric domains in SBN (Strontium-Barium Niobate, Sr0.61Ba0.39Nb2O3, ) crystal can be used for efficient nonlinear optical processes at different frequencies. The ferroelectric domains ...
    • Light-induced capacitance tunability in ferroelectric crystals 

      Páez Margarit, David; Rubio Marcos, Fernando; Ochoa Guerrero, Diego A.; Del Campo Garcia, Angel Adolfo; Fernández Lozano, José Francisco; García García, José Eduardo (2018-07-05)
      Article
      Open Access
      The remote controlling of ferroic properties with light is nowadays a hot and highly appealing topic in materials science. Here, we shed light on some of the unresolved issues surrounding light–matter coupling in ferroelectrics. ...
    • Low temperature dielectric relaxation in ordinary perovskite ferroelectrics: enlightenment from high-energy x-ray diffraction 

      Ochoa Guerrero, Diego A.; Levit Valenzuela, Rafael; Fancher, Christopher M.; Esteves, Giovanni; Jones, Jacob L.; García García, José Eduardo (2017-04-26)
      Article
      Open Access
      Ordinary ferroelectrics exhibit a second order phase transition that is characterized by a sharp peak in the dielectric permittivity at a frequency-independent temperature. Furthermore, these materials show a low temperature ...
    • New insights into the optical control of macroscopic polarization in ferroelectric crystals 

      Páez Margarit, David (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-06)
      Bachelor thesis

      Ochoa Guerrero, Diego A.; García García, José Eduardo (2016-04)
      Article
      Open Access
      The Preisach model is a classical method for describing nonlinear behavior in hysteretic systems. According to this model, a hysteretic system contains a collection of simple bistable units which are characterized by an ...
