Ferroelectrics have now been in use for decades, but they are still an expanding field. Their use in computing will only increase as they are miniaturised. However, to do this, the way in which their properties vary on the microscale has to be understood, so this will be a target for future research. Ferroelectrics will be used for a long time to come, as their properties are unique.
