    • Random Electric Field Instabilities of Relaxor Ferroelectrics 

      Guzmán Verri, Gian Giacomo; Arce Gamboa, José Rafael (2017-06-13)
      Relaxor ferroelectrics are complex oxide materials which are rather unique to study the effects of compositional disorder on phase transitions. Here, we study the effects of quenched cubic random electric fields on the ...
    • Why is the electrocaloric effect so small in ferroelectrics? 

      Guzmán Verri, Gian Giacomo; Littlewood, Peter B. (2016-05-19)
      Ferroelectrics are attractive candidate materials for environmentally friendly solid state refrigeration free of greenhouse gases. Their thermal response upon variations of external electric fields is largest in the vicinity ...
