## Fundamental Physics of Ferroelectrics 2002: Washington, DC 3-6 February 2002This workshop continues an annual series held since 1990 covering the fundamental understanding of ferroelectrics and piezoelectrics using first-principles theory and experiments. Of particular interest this year are the new high strain single crystal piezoelectrics, superlattices, and complex solid solutions. Also this year is growing interest in understanding dynamical properties of relaxors, using theory and experiment, particularly inelastic neutron scattering. |
