Workshop Description

This workshop will bring together scientists in the field of ferroelectric domain walls. In the spirit of CECAM workshops, it is designed with the idea of facilitating a exchange of views between a selected group of researches approaching problems in this field from different angles: computation, theory, and experiment. The main goal of the workshop is to refine the attendees' picture of the state of the art regarding ferroelectric domain walls properties and applications, focusing on what are the open problems, and what are the opportunities for development of approaches to solve them.


Organizers

  • Oswaldo Diéguez (Tel Aviv University, Israel)
  • Ilya Grinberg (Bar Ilan University, Israel)
  • Jorge Íñiguez (LIST, Luxembourg)
