Symposium KK

Polarization-crucial Materials for Sensing, Transduction and Energy

The symposium will provide an international forum for participants to exchange their insights, research outcomes and information related to polarization-crucial materials and technologies, promoting synergy among the efforts on materials, devices, system integrations, and applications.

The technical subject is about polarization-crucial materials for sensing, transduction and energy applications, covering following topics.

  • Composition, processing, structure, and property of various dielectric materials, including linear dielectric, piezoelectric, pyroelectric, ferroelectric, and electret materials
  • Design, fabrication and property of various micro/nano structures and interfaces with electric polarization and charge distribution, eg. space charges
  • Theory, analysis, characterization, modeling and simulation related to polarization and charge distributions
  • Dielectric behaviors at high frequency, including THz; photon and phonon interactions
  • Technologies of sensing, energy harvesting, vibration/noise mitigation, data and energy storage enabled by dielectric materials, and/or micro/nano structures and interfaces with electric polarization and charge distribution
  • Signal and energy transductions among mechanical, electrical, thermal, optical, and magnetic (such as electromechanical, laser ultrasonic, photoacoustic, viscoelastic, magnetostrictive, photovoltaic conversions), and their applications
  • Sensors, actuators, transducers, memories, energy harvesters, acoustic absorbers, vibration damper, capacitors, and supercapacitors
