While working in Japan he has pioneered the SPM-based method for non-destructive high-resolution imaging of ferroelectric domains in thin films and memory devices - an approach now known as Piezoresponse Force Microscopy (PFM). Dr. Gruverman has co-authored over 150 papers in peer-reviewed international journals (including Science, Nature Materials and Physical Review Letters), which are cited more than 5000 times, a number of book chapters and review articles and has edited three books and several special journal issues on ferroelectricity. Dr. Gruverman serves as an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control. He is a recipient of the 2004 Ikeda Foundation Award, Japan, and International Symposium on Integrated Ferroelectrics 2010 Outstanding Achievement Award and is a Fellow of the American Physical Society. A list of his most important scientific accomplishments include (1) development of Piezoresponse Force Microscopy (PFM), (2) manipulation of ferroelectric domains at the nanoscale, (3) development of an approach for fast switching dynamics in ferroelectric capacitors, (4) demonstration of the tunneling electroresistance effect in ferroelectrics, and (5) nanoscale characterization of electromechanical behavior of biological systems.
