ferroelectric hysteresis[fe·rō·i′lek·trik ‚his·tə′rē·səs]
The dependence of the polarization of ferroelectric materials not only on the applied electric field but also on their previous history; analogous to magnetic hysteresis in ferromagnetic materials. Also known as dielectric hysteresis; electric hysteresis.
