Hot off the press: Published paper in “Small”

Congratulations to Martí Gich, tenured researcher at the N&N group, and the rest of the authors for the recently published paperElectric and Mechanical Switching of Ferroelectric and Resistive States in Semiconducting BaTiO3–δ Films on Silicon. Moreover, the paper was on the cover of the journal Small (Volume 13, Issue 39, October 18, 2017).

In article number 1701614, Andrés Gómez, Adrián Carretero-Genevrier, and co-workers report a novel approach to integrate epitaxial nanostructured n-type semiconducting BaTiO3−δ films on silicon by combining molecular beam epitaxy and a water-based chemical method. This growth strategy results into epitaxial BaTiO3−δ/La0.7Sr0.3MnO3/SrTiO3/Si columnar nanostructures that enhance the flexoelectric response of the system and enables the control of the ferroelectric polarization and local conductivity (resistive switching) of this functional oxide upon applying a mechanical load.
