Representing a quantum leap in the semiconductor industry, ferroelectric materials have been widely used in applications such as memory devices, field-effect transistors, and micro-actuators due to their intrinsic hysteresis behaviour and electrically switchable nature, and researchers have recently been making progress in discovering new ferroelectric materials and new ferroelectricity mechanisms. Nevertheless, there are still open questions closely related to the application of ferroelectric materials, which are drawing great research interest. For instance, how do defects in real materials influence ferroelectric performance, and can we control the defect level by the choice of synthesis technique? In newly discovered ferroelectric materials, can the ferroelectricity be efficiently coupled with other controllable parameters? What happens if ferroelectrics are applied at low dimensions?
The present Special issue on “Multifunctionalities in Advanced Ferroelectric Materials” aims to publish papers providing a scientific illustration of the design and synthesis of (potential) ferroelectric materials; analyses of microscopic structure and texture; characterizations of phononic, photonic, and electronic phenomena; and demonstrations of prototypical devices and application perspectives. The Issue will summarize the recent progress on functional ferroelectric materials and provide insights into the future study of next-generation ferroelectric materials and ferroelectric-based devices.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
