Dr. Kholkin’s research interests are in the area of materials science of ferroelectrics: thin films, single crystals and ceramics. His study is mainly devoted to materials for piezoelectric devices, degradation effects, and, recently, to nanoscale characterization by Scanning Probe Microscopy techniques.  Recently started projects are related to the development of multiferroic materials and novel self-assembly methods using ferroelectric polymers.
