The need to more efficiently harvest energy for electronics has spurred investigation into materials that can harvest energy from locally abundant sources. Ferroelectric Materials for Energy Harvesting and Storage is the first book to bring together fundamental mechanisms for harvesting various abundant energy sources using ferroelectric and piezoelectric materials. The authors discuss strategies of designing materials for efficiently harvesting energy sources like solar, wind, wave, temperature fluctuations, mechanical vibrations, biomechanical motion, and stray magnetic fields. In addition, concepts of the high density energy storage using ferroelectric materials is explored. Ferroelectric Materials for Energy Harvesting and Storage is appropriate for those working in materials science and engineering, physics, chemistry and electrical engineering disciplines.

Abhijit Pramanick is an Assistant Professor at the City University of Hong Kong. He obtained his Bachelors in Engineering from the National Institute of Technology, Rourkela, India and his Masters in Engineering from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. He was awarded PhD in Materials Science and Engineering in 2009 from the University of Florida, Gainesville. After his PhD, he spent one year as a postdoctoral researcher at the ceramics laboratory of the Alfred University in New York, USA. Subsequently, he moved to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where he spent three and half years working on the applications of different neutron scattering techniques to understand the microscopic origins of functional responses in ferroelectric and ferromagnetic materials. He has co-authored over 30 publications. For his work on ferroelectric ceramics, he was awarded the prestigious Edward C. Henry Award by the American Ceramic Society in the years 2010 and 2012. His current research interests include understanding composition-structure-property correlations in ferroelectric ceramic and polymeric materials that are used in smart technologies and energy applications using advanced neutron and X-ray scattering techniques.
