S2: Advanced Dielectric, Piezoelectric and Ferroic Materials, and Emerging Materials in Electronics


EMA 2012


This symposium brings together researchers from academia and industry to present the latest advances in synthesis, modeling and characterization of dielectric, piezoelectric, ferroelectric, and multiferroic materials. These materials have a tremendous impact on a variety of civilian and defense applications, including tunable microwave devices, sonar transducers, memories, MEMS devices, high-energy-density capacitors, piezoelectric composites, energy harvesting, actuators and sensors. Recent work on bridging phases in relaxor-based perovskites, multiferroic heterostructures, lead-free piezoelectrics, composite thin films, flexoelectric effect, and fundamental materials science, including computational and analytical modeling will be discussed. Other topics of interest include nanoscale domain phenomena, ferroelectric thin films, structure-property relationships, magnetoelectric composite structures, and electric field induced phase phenomena.
