Topics and Themes

The technical program of IWRF-2018 will include the following topics:
  1. Basic principles of relaxor ferroelectrics & progress in
      theory
  2. Chemical order/disorder vs. polar inhomogeneities
  3. Polar nanoregions and nanodomains
  4. Structure of relaxors: Local structures vs. average
      structures
  5. Surfaces & interfaces in relaxors
  6. Dielectric piezo & ferroelectric properties
  7. Dielectric, optic, neutron and X-ray spectroscopy
  8. 2D & nano-structured relaxors
  9. Lead-free relaxors
  10. Magnetic, polymeric reentrant & exotic relaxors
  11. Relaxors-based ferroic materials: Single crystals, ceramics
        and thin films
  12. Applications of relaxor ferroelectrics: Electromechanical
        sensors and actuators, sonars, high-density memories,
        giant capacitors for high-density energy storage,
        optoelectronic devices, smart materials for Internet
        of Things, etc.

The program of IWRF-2018 will be implemented in the forms of plenary (keynote) and invited talks, poster and oral presentations from academic and industrial researchers, short courses designed for young researchers, and exhibitions from industry.
