6th French-German Workshop on Oxide, Dielectric, and Laser Crystals 2017
2017-09-14 to 2017-09-15
Bordeaux/Pessac, France
Oxides constitute the most versatile class of inorganic materials, and single crystals provide superior as well as homogeneous properties. Such crystals are used e.g. as optical, piezoelectric, or laser materials, and as substrates for piezoelectric and oxide electronic applications. As oxide crystals appear in many crystallographic structures and can be formed from nearly every element in the periodic table, the preparation of novel materials as well as the improvement of their structural quality is key for providing materials with improved or even novel characteristics.
