Dear Colleagues,

I’m reaching out as an organizer of the Dielectric and Ferroic Oxides DMP Focus Topic (8.1.3) for the 2020 American Physical Society March Meeting.

We are looking for outstanding researchers who have made recent and significant contributions to the field of dielectric and ferroic oxides to be nominated to present invited talks at next year’s meeting.

If you would like to nominate someone, you can simply send an e-mail to [email protected] with the following information:

Proposed Speaker’s Name
Reason for nominating (3 sentences max.)
Have you contacted the speaker about this opportunity to confirm that they will be attending APS March Meeting 2020?

We appreciate your time and your help making next year’s meeting the best it can be.

Best regards,
Turan Birol, Geneva Laurita, Ryan Need

08.01.03 Dielectric and ferroic oxides (DMP, DCOMP) [same as 11.01.01, 16.01.14,,,]

Complex oxides exhibit a rich variety of interactions between the strongly correlated spin, charge, lattice, and orbital degrees of freedom. These interactions lead to competing ground states and intricate phase diagrams that host a vast range of functional properties including: ferroelectricity, pyroelectricity, electrocaloricity, magnetoelectricity, multiferroicity, metal-insulator transitions and defect- related properties. It is these functional properties and their application to up-and-coming technologies that are the principal topics of interest for this symposium. In particular, this focus topic welcomes contributions on fundamental aspects of structure, ordering and functionality in complex oxides as well as emerging avenues to controlling polarization, magnetism, and electronic properties via strain, composition, defects, and broken symmetry. Breakthroughs and progress in the theory, synthesis, characterization, and device implementations in these and other related topics are highly encouraged.
