Artificially layered ferroelectric structures allow functional properties to be defined through the thickness of the constituent layers while surface termination can be separately controlled and modified to suit particular applications. Two applications of note are the control of graphene resistivity by the polarization state of the ferroelectric, and enhanced photocatalyzed water splitting on the ferroelectric surface, and I will report on our work in both of these areas in this seminar.
