Stabilization of Highly Polar BiFeO 3 -like Structure: A New Interface Design Route for Enhanced Ferroelectricity in Artificial Perovskite Superlattices
Simulations show that the interface between two perovskite oxides can be a much stronger ferroelectric than either oxide on its own.
Interface enhanced functionalities in oxide superlattices under mechanical and electric boundary conditions
In recent years, the inverse design of artificial materials, in the format of thin-films and superlattices, has been an active sub-field in material science. From a joint effort from both experiment

Strain-Induced Hybrid Improper Ferroelectricity in Simple Perovskites from First Principles
We performed first principles calculations for epitaxially strained orthorhombic CaTiO$_3$. The computational results reveal the existence of a metastable ferroelectric phase at compressive strain
Simple ways of determining perovskite structures
A simple technique is described for ascertaining trial models for the structures of perovskites. The method relies on an understanding of the fundamental components of the structure. Rules are given
Group-theoretical analysis of octahedral tilting in ferroelectric perovskites.
Group-theoretical methods are used to analyze perovskite structures where both ferroelectric cation displacements and simple tilting of octahedral units are present. This results in a list of 40
Predicting polarization and nonlinear dielectric response of arbitrary perovskite superlattice sequences.
TLDR
This work compute and store not only the total polarization, but also the Wannier-based polarizations of individual atomic layers, as a function of the electric displacement field, to construct a model capable of predicting the nonlinear dielectric response of an arbitrary superlattice sequence.
Ferroelectricity in Ultrathin Perovskite Films
TLDR
A synchrotron x-ray study of lead titanate as a function of temperature and film thickness for films as thin as a single unit cell implies that no thickness limit is imposed on practical devices by an intrinsic ferroelectric size effect.
