This symposium brings together materials and engineering researchers to present the latest advances in electronic materials, including synthesis/processing as well as microstructure analysis and characterization of dielectric, piezoelectric, pyroelectric, and ferroelectric properties in the form of bulk ceramics, single crystals, glasses, and multilayers. These materials have tremendous impact on a variety of technologies, including ultrasonic transducers, memories, MEMS devices, actuators, sensors, and tunable microwave devices. Other topics of interest include nanoscale domain phenomena, defect chemistry, structure–property relationships, and electric-field-induced phase transitions.
- Advanced electronic materials, including ferroelectric, piezoelectric, dielectric, electrostrictive, and pyroelectric materials
- Materials design, new materials and structures, and their emerging applications
