Ferroelectric materials appear in a broad range of devices, ranging from acoustic transducers, through electro-optic modulators, to capacitors. The phenomenon of ferroelectricity is also studied in diverse ways, ranging from neutron scattering, through electrical measurements, to first-principles calculations. This breadth exerts a centrifugal force on the field and inhibits full exploitation of the synergies amongst the researchers working on different aspects of ferroelectrics.

By sponsoring the start-up of this newsletter, we hope to exert a centrip- etal force on the research community. This exchange of information should foster in the first stage awareness, in the second stage communication, and finally direct links between research specialties.

We expect this cross-fertilization will accelerate research efforts across the entire field, providing benefits to those studying ferroelectrics both from fundamental and applied perspectives.

The Ferroelectricity Newsletter was published quarterly by the Naval Postgraduate School, Space Systems Academic Group, Monterey, California, with the support of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Office of Naval Research (ONR).
