Winter School on Sunday

In case of questions, please contact us on piezo2019@fzu.cz.

As part of the conference a winter school will be organised on the Sunday before the conference (January 27).

The winter school is taught by 4 lecturers and will focus on several topics. The first topic is focused on the steps in processing of ferroelectrics, going deeply into the solid state synthesis of the perovskitic phase, cold consolidation and densification. The second topic will be going into the chemical solution deposition and inkjet printing in regards to functional-oxide thin films and nanostructures. The next topic is dedicated to the elaboration process of piezoelectric ceramic materials focusing on the piezoelectric properties of polycristalline materials with an emphasize on methods of synthesis and sintering of ceramics and thick/thin films. The last topic relates to piezoelectric, elastic and dielectric characterization of  ferro-piezoelectric ceramics, including all losses with a focus on the 25 year usage of the automatic iterative analysis of impedance curves at resonance.
