Nanoscale Phase Transformations in Functional Materials

Veröffentlichungen: Beitrag in BuchBeitrag in Buch/SammelbandPeer Reviewed

Abstract

The in-depth knowledge of the complex mechanisms of phase transformations of nanoscale functional materials is a prerequisite for controlling their properties. With a special emphasis on ferroic systems, the present chapter gives a review on phase transformations of various nanostructured functional materials. The review includes their size dependent properties, as well as corresponding physical concepts of nonextensive nanothermodynamics, phase fluctuations, critical temperatures, scaling laws, transition pathways, and domain formation.
