Fundamental Physics

of Ferroelectrics

and related materials 


An annual series of workshops starting in 1990
Over the past 30 years this workshop has evolved into one of the world's leading forums on the physics of ferroelectricity and related phenomenon, where the best researchers from around the world gather to share and debate cutting edge developments in the field of ferroelectrics and related materials, both experimental and theoretical.  This workshop series has played a significant role in fostering multi-institutional collaborations on research devoted to understanding the fundamental physics of these complex and versatile materials.
