About this Book

Functional oxides have a wide variety of applications in the electronic industry. The discovery of new metal oxides with interesting and useful properties continues to drive much research in chemistry, physics, and materials science.

In Functional Oxides five topical areas have been selected to illustrate the importance of metal oxides in modern materials chemistry:

  • Noncentrosymmetric Inorganic Oxide Materials
  • Geometrically Frustrated Magnetic Materials
  • Lithium Ion Conduction in Oxides
  • Thermoelectric Oxides
  • Transition Metal Oxides - Magnetoresistance and Half-Metallicity

The contents highlight structural chemistry, magnetic and electronic properties, ionic conduction and other emerging areas of importance, such as thermoelectricity and spintronics.

Functional Oxides covers these complex concepts in a clear and accessible manner providing an excellent introduction to this broad subject area.
