    Interfacial thermal transport plays a prominent role in the thermal management of nanoscale objects and is of fundamental importance for basic research and nanodevices. At metal/insulator interfaces, a configuration commonly ...
  • On the possibility that PbZrO3 not be antiferroelectric 

    Aramberri, Hugo; Cazorla Silva, Claudio; Stengel, Massimiliano; Iñiguez Amigot, José Ignacio (2021-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Lead zirconate (PbZrO3) is considered the prototypical antiferroelectric material with an antipolar ground state. Yet, several experimental and theoretical works hint at a partially polar behaviour in this compound, ...
