Today I learned that there is a chemistry paper published that was written completely in iambic pentameter. I thought I could use this as inspiration and write my thesis entire in haiku, which would also solve my problem of being way too wordy when I write. But I realized there are too many syllables in “ferroelectric” and “superlattice”, so maybe I’ll try limericks.

How about this one.

I made a superlattice ferroelectric

But the domains looked a little hectic

I vacuum annealed

The heat did the deal

But now it’s a poor dielectric!
