About this book


The field of ferroelectricity is a very active one. Many hundreds of papers in this field are published each year and a large number of local and international conferences are held. The material in this book originally appeared in the Journal of Materials Science.  The special issue entitled Frontiers of Ferroelectricity appeared as Volume 41, Issue 1 of the Journal of Materials Science in January 2006.  Researchers and students should find great value in having this complete set of papers available in book form.

The book presents theory, fundamentals and applications of ferroelectricity. It describes the current levels of understanding of various aspects of the subject as presented by authorities in the field. Reviews and research reports cover the spectrum of ferroelectricity.  Topics include relaxors, piezoelectrics, microscale and nanoscale studies, polymers and composites, unusual properties, and techniques and devices.  The information in this book is intended for physicists, engineers and materials scientists working with ferroelectric materials including ceramics, single crystals, polymers, composites and even some biological materials.
