Abstract:

Ferroic materials have found application in both sensing and actuating devices such as detectors, high-and low-frequency transducers, capacitors, optical modulators, shutters, and photorestrictive and electrostrictive devices. The application areas of ferroics in single-crystal, bulk ceramics, thin-film, and composite forms have been expanding quite rapidly in recent years. As a result, new materials design and fabrication techniques are needed to satisfy the new emerging applications of these smart materials and structures. With the drive of new national and international initiatives in the areas of advanced materials and technology, smart structures and systems, environmental benefication programs, etc., it is highly desirable to review and project the direction in materials design, preparation, and sensing properties.
