    • Abstract

       

      Properties of materials exhibiting cooperative phenomena are likely to be modified on restricting the lattice size. Several such microcrystalline materials have been studied to infer general underlying principles. Ferroelectricity, ferromagnetism, superconductivity, and superfluidity in limited lattice sometimes not only show modified behaviour but also new behaviour not present in bulk. Microcrystals are considered to be free, coupled, grain-boundary-separated, or domain-wall-separated.
