In Functional Oxides five topical areas have been selected to illustrate the importance of metal oxides in modern materials chemistry:
- Noncentrosymmetric Inorganic Oxide Materials
- Geometrically Frustrated Magnetic Materials
- Lithium Ion Conduction in Oxides
- Thermoelectric Oxides
- Transition Metal Oxides - Magnetoresistance and Half-Metallicity
The contents highlight structural chemistry, magnetic and electronic properties, ionic conduction and other emerging areas of importance, such as thermoelectricity and spintronics.
Functional Oxides covers these complex concepts in a clear and accessible manner providing an excellent introduction to this broad subject area.
