For UW physicists, the 2-D form of tungsten ditelluride is full of surprises

Researchers report that the 2-D form of tungsten ditelluride can undergo ‘ferroelectric switching.’ Materials with ferroelectric properties can have applications in memory storage, capacitors, RFID card technologies and even medical sensors — and tungsten ditelluride is the first exfoliated 2-D material known to undergo ferroelectric switching. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/08/180809175057.htm
