Solid State Materials Chemistry

Dielectric, piezo- and ferroelectric materials; relaxor ferroelectricity; magnetoelectric materials; solid state synthesis, single crystal growth and soft chemistry preparation; phase transitions and critical behavior; domain structures and properties; broadband dielectric and impedance spectroscopy; structure-property relations; sensors and actuators, materials for solid oxide fuel cells.

Research Interests

Synthesis and characterization of the structure and physical properties of ferroic materials, including (i) high-performance relaxor-based piezoelectric single crystals, (ii) single crystals of lead zirconate/titanate (PZT), (iii) relaxor ferroelectrics, (iv) multiferroics, and (v) lead-free piezo-/ferroelectric materials.
