报告摘要:

Research into antiferroelectrics goes through the middle of an exciting scientific journey. These materials became attractive because of the ability to store electric energy without chemical reactions but by means of triggering changes in the crystal structure. Nowadays, most of the attention in the field turns towards nanotechnology involving antiferroelectric materials, because of the recent discoveries of exceptional opportunities in applications. Antiferroelectric epitaxial films can act as effective thermal valves, memory elements and eco-friendly coolers. I would like to explain the path between the modern thin-film advances and some of their backbones in the experimental physics of phase transitions in AFE bulks. Particularly exciting insights come from x-ray studies of AFE single crystals that are subjected to hydrostatic pressure in diamond anvil cells or to unconventional chemical doping. Diffuse and inelastic x-ray scattering techniques at synchrotrons allow to see the unlocked fluctuations of incommensurate order parameter and understand the link between incommensurations and instability with respect to anti-phase octahedral tilts. That information, which originates from bulk AFE studies, is essential for controlling the functional behavior of AFE films, because octahedral tilts are tightly related to epitaxial strains, while the incommensurations and related phenomena determine the energy storage and, likely, other functional opportunities.
