Symposium EL07-Emerging Ferroic Materials—Synthesis, Properties and Applications

Ferroic materials with one or more primary ferroic orders (ferroelectricity, ferromagnetism, multiferroicity) exhibit rich physics and great potential for applications in next-generation electronics. Significant research efforts over the past decades have spurred unprecedented advances in the study of these materials. Recent breakthroughs in materials synthesis, characterization, and device fabrication have led to emerging materials and phenomena, including nanomembranes, 2D ferroelectrics, exotic topological structures, and novel high-k dielectrics, etc. These advancements have attracted world-wide interest and opened up a new era toward understanding fundamental ferroic phenomena.

This symposium aims to bring together scientific experts and young scientists with an interest in theory and modeling, synthesis, characterization, and device fabrication of ferroic materials, advancing the fundamental understanding, development of modern experimental techniques, and exploration of new devices and applications. In addition to providing an interdisciplinary platform for sharing and discussing latest advances, this symposium will help in formulating the research opportunities, key challenges, and development pathways for this continuously growing field.

Topics will include:

  • Advanced synthesis and characterization techniques for ferroic materials
  • Ferroic thin-films, heterostructures, nanostructures, and membranes
  • Emerging ferroics: 2D ferroelectrics and high entropy dielectrics
  • Hafnium oxides and novel high-k dielectrics
  • Piezoelectric and pyroelectric materials for devices
  • Bulk magnetoelectric and multiferroic materials
  • Multiscale theory and modeling of ferroic materials
  • Voltage control of magnetization and spin textures
  • Ferroic materials for neuromorphic computing
  • Ferroic materials for spintronics and memory devices
  • Magnetoelectric sensors and antennas
