S1: S1: Functional and Multifunctional Electroceramics for Energy Storage, Conversion, and Harvesting, Detectors, Sensors, Frequency Agile Components, Packaging, Interconnects and Other Commercial Opportunities

 

EMA 2013

 

 Functional and Multifunctional Electroceramics for Energy Storage, Conversion, and Harvesting, Detectors, Sensors, Frequency Agile Components, Packaging, Interconnects and Other Commercial Opportunities brings together material scientists, engineers, researchers and technologists from academia, government and industry to present the latest advances in functional and multifunctional electroceramics and their commercial opportunities. Ferroelectric, pyroelectric, piezoelectric and lead-free piezoelectric, paraelectric, dielectric, flexoelectric, magnetostrictive, ferroelectric-thermoelectrics, oxide superconductors and other materials in the form of bulk, thin and thick films, composites, single crystals, homo- and hetero-epitaxial films and multilayers, MEMS and NEMS as well as material and device modeling will be discussed toward enabling technologies. Energy technologies, materials and devices, related to storage, conversion, and harvesting are of interest. Detectors, sensors and other component technologies that provide narrow-band, multi-band, broadband or that provide frequency agile opportunities are of interest. Other commercial opportunities including but not limited to packaging and interconnect technologies are of interest. Within this symposium it is anticipated that topics from fundamental material science such as interface and nanoscale domain phenomena through macroscale device and system level criteria and engineering and reliability will be discussed.
