Dalal ED1 - Mickaƫl Lallart Y1 - 2011-08-23 PY - 2011 T1 - Ab Initio Studies of H-Bonded Systems: The Cases of Ferroelectric KH2PO4 and Antiferroelectric NH4H2PO4 N2 - Ferroelectric materials have been and still are widely used in many applications, that have moved from sonar towards breakthrough technologies such as memories or optical devices. This book is a part of a four volume collection (covering material aspects, physical effects, characterization and modeling, and applications) and focuses on the characterization of ferroelectric materials, including structural, electrical and multiphysic aspects, as well as innovative techniques for modeling and predicting the performance of these devices using phenomenological approaches and nonlinear methods. Hence, the aim of this book is to provide an up-to-date review of recent scientific findings and recent advances in the field of ferroelectric system characterization and modeling, allowing a deep understanding of ferroelectricity.
