Scope

Metal oxides offer a wide spectrum of properties, which originate from intrinsic coupling between lattice deformation and nanoscale electronic and magnetic ordering. Strain has a profound influence on the electrical, optical, and magnetic properties of these materials. Advances in materials processing have led to the synthesis of single-crystalline metal oxides thin films and wires with unit cell control.

Strain-controlled electromechanical response in piezoelectric oxides, strain-induced metal–insulator transitions, strain-controlled ferroelastic/ferroelectric domains, as well as electrical polarization induced by a strain gradient (flexoelectricity) will be presented.

Simulation and characterization methodologies of strained metal oxides thin films and wires will be described. Related nanoscale device applications such as strain sensing, power generation, low power switches or domain-wall-based nanoelectronics will be highlighted as well.

This joint workshop between GDRi CNRS MECANO and GDR CNRS OXYFUN will be organized at UC Louvain on April 16 and 17, 2015.
