  • Physics of Ferroelectricsby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 259.00

    During the past two decades, revolutionary breakthroughs have occurred in the understanding of ferroelectric materials, both from the perspective of theory and experiment. First principles approaches, including the Berry phase formulation of ferroelectricity, now allow accurate, quantitative predictions of material properties, and single crystalline... more...

  • Ferroelectric Dielectrics Integrated on Siliconby Defaÿ; Emmanuel

    Wiley 2013; US$ 212.00

    This book describes up-to-date technology applied to high-K materials for More Than Moore applications, i.e. microsystems applied to microelectronics core technologies. After detailing the basic thermodynamic theory applied to high-K dielectrics thin films including extrinsic effects, this book emphasizes the specificity of thin films. Deposition... more...

  • Ferroelectric Crystals for Photonic Applicationsby Pietro Ferraro; Paolo De Natale

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 279.00

    The idea to write a new book in the ?eld of ferroelectric crystals arose from some considerationsreportedinthefollowing. Inthelast5years,severalgroupsallaround the world in the ?eld of engineering and characterization of ferroelectric crystals have published more than 300 papers. The motivation for such an intense research activity is referable to... more...

  • Ferroelectricity at the Nanoscaleby Vladimir Fridkin; Stephen Ducharme

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 179.00

    This book examines a wide range of ferroelectric materials. It explains the theoretical background of ultrathin ferroelectric films,  presents applications of ferroelectric materials, and displays the mechanism of switching of nanosized ferroelectric films. more...

  • An Introduction to the Phenomenological Theory of Ferroelectricityby J. Grindlay; D. Ter Haar

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    An Introduction to the Phenomenological Theory of Ferroelectricity covers topics about the basis and derivation of the macroscopic or phenomenological theory of the elastic, dielectric and thermal properties of crystals as applied in the field of ferroelectricity. The monograph discusses the elastic, dielectric, and thermal properties of ferroelectric... more...

  • System Identification Using Regular and Quantized Observationsby Qi He; Le Yi Wang; George G. Yin

    Springer New York 2013; US$ 49.95

    ?This brief presents characterizations of identification errors under a probabilistic framework when output sensors are binary, quantized, or regular.  By considering both space complexity in terms of signal quantization and time complexity with respect to data window sizes, this study provides a new perspective to understand the fundamental relationship... more...

  • Piezoelectricityby Walter Heywang

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 279.00

    Piezoelectric materials can be tailored for many technological applications, but such tailoring requires a basic understanding of the physical principles and technological possibilities of the materials. This book covers those basics. more...

  • The Beginnings of Piezoelectricityby Shaul Katzir

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 209.00

    Involving electricity, elasticity, thermodynamics and crystallography, several scientific traditions and approaches and leading physicists, the history of piezoelectricity provides an advantageous perspective on late nineteenth century physics and its development. The beginnings of piezoelectricity, the first history of the subject, exhaustively examines... more...
