Creation of Materials Science for Advanced Ferroelectrics of Organic Compounds

Research Project Outline

Exclusion of toxic lead and rare metallic elements in ferroelectrics is still one of the most important issues of element strategy. This research team aims at paradigm shift on ferroelectrics on the basis of the molecular compounds of C, H, O, and N elements, the ferroelectricity of which has been lately discovered by the team leader. Materials science for advanced ferroelectrics will be constructed by clarifying the microscopic/mesoscopic mechanisms of ferroelectricity specific to the molecular system, and by developing new materials and processes for improvement of the performance, endurance, and thin-film device fabrications.
