The origin of electrocaloric effect in PbZrO3, explained: antiferroelectric – ferroelectric phase switching

A research led by ICREA Prof. Gustau Catalán, group leader at the ICN2, and published in Physical Review proposes a response to the debate over the origin of the large negative electrocaloric effect observed in antiferroelectric PbZrO3. The understanding of the mechanism at the basis of this phenomenon is also relevant to its application to cooling systems for integrated circuits.
