Since the 1997 Kyoto protocol of reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, the development of novel refrigerators has been a priority within the scientific community. Although magnetocaloric materials are promising candidates, they still need a large magnetic field to induce a giant ΔT as well as powerful and costly magnets. However, in electrocaloric materials (ECMs) a temperature change may be achieved by applying or removing an electric field. Since a giant electrocaloric effect on ferroelectric thin films was reported in Science in 2006,

In August 2011 at the International Symposium on Integrated Functionalities in Cambridge, a whole session was devoted to the electrocaloric effect, which is undergoing a modest renaissance. Surprisingly, the various reports showed that the indirect method of measuring cooling (described in the following sections) did not usually agree with the direct method (actually measuring temperature change with a thermometer). However, there was no obvious systematic error: sometimes the indirect temperature change was larger and sometimes smaller. The discrepancies were beyond the

Ferroelectricity in Doped Hafnium Oxide: Materials, Properties and Devices covers all aspects relating to the structural and electrical properties of HfO2 and its implementation into semiconductor devices, including a comparison to standard ferroelectric materials. The ferroelectric and field-induced ferroelectric properties of HfO2-based films are considered promising for various applications, including non-volatile memories, negative capacitance field-effect-transistors, energy storage, harvesting, and solid-state cooling. Fundamentals of ferroelectric and piezoelectric properties, HfO2 processes, and the impact of dopants on ferroelectric properties are also

The electrocaloric effect describes a reversible temperature change in dielectric materials submitted to an applied electric field. Adiabatic polarization raises their temperature, and adiabatic depolarization lowers it, analogous to temperature changes that occur when a gas is compressed or expanded. For refrigerator application, the reverse Brayton cycle is currently the most promising for practical implementation. The electrocaloric effect provides a large material efficiency. However, existing refrigerator prototypes lack from the absence of efficient heat switches for thermal linkage to the

P(VDF-TrFE) is a normal ferroelectric/ or copolymer, while P(VDF-TrFE-CTFE) is a relaxor ferroelectric / or terpolymer. The Frequency dependent antiferroelectric-like behavior and Electrocaloric Effect of the former two polymer blends were estimated. It showed very interesting results which has been described on the basis of FTIR, XRD and Frequency dependent Dielectric Constant in this book in detail. The enhancement in the Electrocaloric effect (ECE) with the operational frequency is attributed to the antiferroelectric to paraelectric transition of polyemer blends.
