Physics of ferroelectrics and related materials

This program focuses on the experimental study of the ferroelectric domain structure, kinetics of the phase transformations and domain engineering, among other topics. The students will have access to modern analytical and technological equipment. The Department staff is very friendly and you will have the opportunity to try over a hundred different types of green tea.
