Symposium E: 先进陶瓷制备技术与产业化应用 (中文会场)
Symposium F: Geopolymer and Geopolymer Developed Ceramics & Composites



Symposium D
Progress and Challenges in Lead-free Piezoelectrics

Ferroelectric and piezoelectric materials play an important role in various kinds of modern electronic devices, such as sensors, transducers and piezoelectric actuators. From the viewpoint of environmental protection on the earth, high-performance lead-free piezoelectric ceramics are one of urgent demands, which have stimulated huge amounts of related materials research in past decade. The first International Symposium on Lead-Free Piezoelectric Ceramics was held at CICC-5 from May 10 to 13, 2007, in Changsha, Hunan Province, China. Since then, abundant and prosperous developments and promising achievements have been made, especially in East-Asia. We are pleased to organize the specialsymposium at CICC-10, with a new name “Progress and Challenges in Lead-free Piezoelectrics” to attract more participants from all over the world. Following are tentative session topics for this symposium, and all other contributions related to Pb-free piezoelectric ceramics are also welcome. We are planning to invite some professional scientists in this symposium, and your active participation is cordially welcome.

Proposed topics
SD1. Fundamentals of lead-free ferroelectrics and piezoelectrics
SD2. Processing of high-performance lead-free piezoelectrics
SD3. Characterization techniques and property-structure relationship studies
SD4. Applications of lead-free piezoelectrics
