0 Reviews
Here, more than 20 experts from leading research institutes around the world present the entire scope of this rapidly developing field. In so doing, they cover a wide range of topics, including the characterization and investigation of structural, dielectric and piezoelectric properties of ceramic materials, a well as phase transitions, electrical and optical properties and microscopic investigations. Another feature is a complete profile of the properties of polar oxides -- from their proof to their latest applications.
Throughout, the authors review, discuss and assess the material properties with regard to new and advanced characterization and imaging techniques.
For physicists, physicochemists, semiconductor and solid state physicists, materials scientists, and students of chemistry and physics.

About the author (2006)

The Editors:
Rainer Waser
is Professor of Physics at the faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of the RWTH Aachen University and Director at the Institute of Solid State Research (IFF) at the HGF Research Center Jülich, Germany.
In 1984, he received his PhD in physical chemistry at the University of Darmstadt, and worked at the Philips Research Laboratory, Aachen, until he was appointed professor in 1992. His research group is focused on fundamental aspects of electronic materials and on such integrated devices as non-volatile memories, specifically ferroelectric memories, logic devices, sensors and actuators.

Professor Waser's co-editors are Dr. Ulrich Böttger, who works alongside him at the the faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of the RWTH Aachen University, and Stephan Tiedke of the aixACCT Systems GmbH company.
