Description

The book gives a thorough overview on smart materials and systems involving the interplays among the mechanical strain, electrical polarization, magnetization as well as heat and light. In particular, the materials being reviewed include ferroelectric, multiferroic, piezoelectric, electrostrictive, magnetostrictive and shape memory materials as well as their composites. It presents the fundamental physics, fabrication methods and applications of these materials and covers bulk, thin films and nanomaterials. It introduces various sensor and transducer applications, such as ultrasonic transducers, surface acoustic wave devices, microwave devices, magneto-electric devices, infrared detectors and memories.
