Principles and Applications of Ferroelectrics and Related Materials

M. E. Lines and A. M. Glass

Oxford Classic Texts in the Physical Sciences

This book develops the modern theory of ferroelectricity in terms of soft modes and lattice dynamics and describes modern techniques of measurement, including X-ray, optic, and neutron scattering, infrared absorption, and magnetic resonance. It includes a discussion of the related phenomena of antiferroelectricity, pyroelectricity, and ferroelasticity and second on domains, thin films, ceramics, and polymers, leading on to a comprehensive survey of potential and actual device capabilities for pyroelectric detection, memories, display, and modulation. It provides an authoritative guide for those engaged in research or graduate ferroelectric or pyroelectric devices.
