J. F. Fernandez obtained his PhD in Physics in 1990 by the University Autonoma of Madrid. He is at present Professor in Material Technology and Head of the Electroceramics Department at the Instituto de Cerámica y Vidrio, CSIC, Madrid, Spain. He leaders of the Ceramic for Smart System Group (CSS).Fernandez possesses a large experience in ceramic processing of functional ceramics which properties are based on complex micro and nanostructures. His specialization is founded on the knowledge of physics and chemistry phenomena that allows to correlated structure, micro-nanostructure and properties of ceramics. The research activities have crystallized in the development of concepts in functional ceramics and nanotechnology as: ceramic particle surface modification; nanosize proximity effects and nanodispersión; grain boundaries engineering of semiconductor ceramics; understanding of lead free piezoceramic; Confocal Raman Microscopy of ceramics; functionalization of traditional ceramics through nanotechnology; and unusual properties in nanostructured ceramics. His interests are focussed in the development of advanced ceramics to be integrated in smart systems. For this reason the knowledge transfer activities are intensively pursuit.

Abstract

The optical control of ferroic properties is a subject of fascination for the scientific community, because it involves the establishment of new paradigms for technology. Domains and domain walls are known to have a great... [ view full abstract ]
