  • thin films, ceramics and single crystals
  • ceramic multilayers, polymers and composites
  • novel materials
  • multiferroics, magnetoelectrics, electrocalorics, relaxors
  • piezoelectrics and pyroelectrics
  • electrical, mechanical and optical properties


  • memories
  • energy harvesting, cooling
  • energy storage
  • sensors and actuators
  • underwater acoustics
