Flexoelectricity In Solids: From Theory To Applications Hardback
Edited by Alexander K. Tagantsev, Petr V. Yudin
This unique compendium is devoted to flexoelectricity - the response of polarization to a strain gradient.
The effect is analogous to piezoelectricity which is the response of polarization to strain itself.
In contrast to piezoelectricity, which appears only in non-centrosymmetric materials, flexoelectric effect is allowed by symmetry in any materials.
It becomes appreciable in nano-scale systems, where large strain gradients arise.
The book discusses different nano-scale manifestations of the effect ranging from repulsion of acoustic and optic branches of materials to flexoelectricity in domain walls.
It mainly caters for scientists, engineers and students.
