Epsilon-near-zero regime enables permanent ultrafast all-optical reversal of ferroelectric polarization

Nature Photonics, Published online: 09 April 2024; doi:10.1038/s41566-024-01420-3Researchers reveal that naturally emerging epsilon-near-zero conditions in BaTiO3 can be exploited to drive permanent all-optical switching of ferroelectric polarization. The general nature of the epsilon-near-zero regime means that the approach could be used to switch...
