Here is a link if you are interested:

At these thicknesses, it is not certain that these films will maintain their ferroelectric behaviour.

BTDT... it becomes paraeletric at that thickness and local strains induce crystalline defects and thus leakage. It's cool that they are now modeling things we found out experimentally almost a decade ago.
