Presenter: Prof. James F. Scott

3:30 pm-4:30 pmPhysics Colloquium Jorgensen Hall
Electrical switching in ferroelectrics was discovered in 1920, but oddly enough,
no commercial switching devices were made from them until 1984. Some modest
industry use was achieved by 1994, culminating in application in the SONY
Playstation 2. But this did not continue, and the Playstation 3 did not use ferroelectrics.
In this talk Dr. James F. Scott of Cambridge University will explain why, describing both the basic physics (some
of which goes back to Ku and Ullman in Lincoln) and technology transfer, with
an up-date to include recent work on three-dimensional devices, resistive random
access memories (RRAMs), and magnetoelectric switching (switching electrical
polarization P not with an electric field E but with a small magnetic field H) at
room temperature in a single-phase multiferroic crystal.

Refreshments will be served in the Jorgensen Hall Atrium prior to the colloquium.
