Particle size dependence of ferroelectricity was first demonstrated by Uchino on barium titanate and lead titanate based ceramics. Thin film ferroelectrics are known to degrade their performance with reducing the film thickness. Based on these experimental results, Uchino will propose a nano-size modeling for discussing size effect on ferroelectricity
