New paper on origin of incipient ferroelectricity in PbTe published in Nature Communications
A new paper was published in Nature Communications in collaboration with SLAC/Stanford and ORNL. The study investigates the origin of incipient ferroelectricity in PbTe, using ultrafast x-ray scattering at the LCLS and SACLA free electron lasers, combined with density functional theory simulations.
