      Ferroelectric domain walls are promising quasi-2D structures that can be leveraged for miniaturization of electronics components and new mechanisms to control electronic signals at the nanoscale. Despite the significant ...
    • Biocompatibility of (Ba,Ca)(Zr,Ti)O3 piezoelectric ceramics for bone replacement materials 

      Poon, Kara; Wurm, Matthias C.; Evans, Donald; Einarsrud, Mari-Ann; Lutz, Rainer; Glaum, Julia (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Total joint replacement implants are generally designed to physically mimic the biological environment to ensure compatibility with the host tissue. However, implant instability exposes patients to long recovery periods, ...
    • Domain wall mobility and roughening in doped ferroelectric hexagonal manganites 

      Småbråten, Didrik Rene; Holstad, Theodor Secanell; Evans, Donald; Zewu, Yan; Bourret, Edith; Meier, Dennis; Selbach, Sverre Magnus (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The macroscopic performance of ferroelectric and piezoelectric devices depends strongly on domain wall dynamics. It is clear that structural defects, such as vacancies, interstitials, and dopants codetermine the dynamics, ...
    • Domains and domain walls in multiferroics 

      Evans, Donald; Garcia, Vincent; Meier, Dennis Gerhard; Bibes, Manuel (Journal article, 2020)
      Multiferroics are materials combining several ferroic orders, such as ferroelectricity, ferro- (or antiferro-) magnetism, ferroelasticity and ferrotoroidicity. They are of interest both from a fundamental perspective, as ...
    • Electronic bulk and domain wall properties in B-site doped hexagonal ErMnO3 

      Holstad, Theodor S.; Evans, Donald; Ruff, Alexander; Småbråten, Didrik Rene; Schaab, Jakob; Tzschaschel, Christian; Yan, Zewu; Bourret, Edith; Selbach, Sverre Magnus; Krohns, Stephan; Meier, Dennis (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Acceptor and donor doping is a standard for tailoring semiconductors. More recently, doping was adapted to optimize the behavior at ferroelectric domain walls. In contrast to more than a century of research on semiconductors, ...
