This course is an advanced level course for UG students and early PG students of Materials Science and Metallurgy. Various aspects of electronic ceramics are covered in this course which start with emphasis on how structures form in such materials. Then, defects chemistry and defect equilibria in such materials are discussed while elucidating the effect of defect chemistry on ceramic properties.

This will be followed by a treatment of defect diffusion and ionic conductivity in electronic ceramics. Once this framework is established, students will then be exposed to fundamentals and specific cases of linear dielectric as well as ferroics such ferroelectrics and ferromagnetic ceramics. Students will also be familiarized with rather novel phenomenon of Multiferroism briefly. Finally, the course will finish with emphasis on important bulk and thin films processing methods.
