Science journalists aim to illuminate the process, outcomes and policy implications of scientific research for a broad public audience. In a 24-hour digital environment where effective marketing can rule narrative and stories are circulated and amplified via social media, journalists who report on science face new challenges and new opportunities. This is especially so in Canada where, despite a demand and a need for science coverage, resources are constrained by a small market.

Guided by theory, unparalleled properties—those of hidden ground states—are being unleashed by exploiting large strains in concert with the ability to precisely control dimensionality in epitaxial oxide heterostructures.  For example, materials that are not ferroelectric or ferromagnetic in their unstrained state can be transmuted into ferroelectrics, ferromagnets, or materials that are both at the same time.  Similarly, new tunable dielectrics with unparalleled performance have been created.  Results of fundamental scientific importance as well as revealing the tremendous potential of util
