ICN2 research on flexoelectricity highlighted in the MRS Bulletin

The articles comment on a paper published in Applied Physics Letters with ICN2 PhD student Pablo Vales-Castro and ICREA Prof. Gustau Catalán, from the ICN2 Oxide Nanophysics Group, as first and last author, respectively. This work suggests that it is unlikely that flexoelectricity causes antiferroelectricity, as was previously hypothesised.
