Symposium EL10—Electroactive Ceramics for Information Technologies and Flexible Electronics
Electroactive ceramics including a variety of dielectric, ferroelectric, piezoelectric, ferromagnetic and multiferroic ceramics are promising for a wide range of applications in advanced electronics. To meet ever-increasing demands of information technologies and flexible electronics, electroactive ceramics are required to possess a unique combination of the characteristics such as high performance, multifunctionality, and processability. For example, new ceramic processing methods such as room temperature and ultra-low temperature sintering are being developed, enabling unprecedented applications of electroactive ceramics in sensors, actuators, energy harvesting and storage, packaging and interconnects, and microsystems, etc..
This symposium will bring together an international group of researchers from academics and industries to share their vision and insights for wide aspects of electroactive ceramics, such as field-responding physical mechanisms, new design paradigms for advanced structures, novel synthesis strategies, advanced ceramic processing techniques, characterization techniques, and emerging applications. We expect that this symposium could boost the research and development of electroactive ceramics and promote their applications in information technologies and flexible electronics.
