Smart Materials for Electromagnetic and Optical Applications

  title={Smart Materials for Electromagnetic and Optical Applications},
  author={Prashanth Balanje Ramesh},
The research presented in this dissertation focuses on the development of solid-state materials that have the ability to sense, act, think and communicate. Two broad classes of materials, namely ferroelectrics and wideband gap semiconductors were investigated for this purpose. Ferroelectrics possess coupled electromechanical behavior which makes them sensitive to mechanical strains and fluctuations in ambient temperature. Use of ferroelectrics in antenna structures, especially those subject to… CONTINUE READING
