Ferroelectric Material Reveals Unexpected, Intriguing Behavior

Abstract:
In electronics-based technologies, metal-oxide compounds known as “relaxor ferroelectrics” often make up key circuit components due to their unique electrical behavior. They are good insulators and can sustain large electric fields, making them excellent at storing electric charge. They can also turn a mechanical force, like squeezing, into electrical energy.
