Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Introducing ferroelectricity to two-dimensional van der Waals (vdW) materials such as graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides, and black phosphorous presents a promising route for developing high-speed and low-power nanoelectronics. This Perspective reviews two actively pursued materials strategies, ferroelectric/vdW heterostructures and vdW ferroelectric materials. The topics discussed include their application potential and performance limitations as memory, logic, sensing, and optical devices, as well as the challenges and outlook of the field.
