International Symposium on Applications of Ferroelectrics (ISAF)
ISAF is continuation of a series of international conferences sponsored by the Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control (UFFC) Society of the Institute of Electric and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). It is aimed to providing a forum to present and discuss the state-of-the-art developments in the field of ferroelectrics and related materials and their applications, including theory and modeling, materials preparation and characterization, device physics and implementation. A special attetion will be devoted to the emerging materials and applications.
European Conference on the Applications of Polar Dielectrics (ECAPD)
ECAPD is the principal European and international forum where the latest research and technological advances in the field of polar dielectric materials are being presented and discussed. The objective of ECAPD-11 is to foster international and interdisciplinary exchange of information and cooperation among researchers in academia, research institutions, and industries, and to stimulate growth in the field of polar dielectric materials and applications.
International Symposium Piezoresponse Force Microscopy and Nanoscale Phenomena in Polar Materials (PFM)
PFM will feature tutorials on the principles and applications of PFM to ferroelectric and multiferroic materials, as well as new areas of PFM applied to strongly correlated oxides and energy storage and conversion materials. In these systems, the local bias-strain coupling is mediated by Jahn-Teller distortions and oxygen or cationic vacancy diffusion, providing a sensitive measure of local dynamics. The recent advances in imaging of conventional ferroelectrics and polar materials as well as time and voltage spectroscopy of static and dynamic domain structures will be presented.
