Since ferroelectricity was discovered in 1921 it has been obvious to many scientists and engineers that the two stable polarization states +P and -P could be used to encode the 1 and 0 of the Boolean algebra that forms the basis of memory and logic circuitry in all modern computers. Yet until very recently, this has been unsuccessful. In fact, although ferroelectric materials are used in a wide variety of commercial devices, it has until now always been the case that some other property of the material — especially pyroelectricity or piezoelectricity — is the characteristic actually employed. Ironically, no devices using ferroelectrics have actually required ferroelectricity to work.
