Ferro Talks

FerroTalks Webinar Series

In order to stay connected within the ferroelectrics community during these extraordinary times, Prof. Kyle Webber, as the Tutorials and Education Chair of the Ferroelectrics Standing Committe of the IEEE UFFC and the director of the GRK2495, has organised a bi-monthly webinar series on various topics related to the processing, characterization, structure, or modeling of ferroelectrics. Every two weeks a short tutorial (approximately 15 minutes) will be held live via Zoom by various leading experts from around the world, followed by an open discussion and question/answer session.
