Research Interests

Growth and characterization of electro-ceramic thin films, ceramics, and nano-structured materials; especially ferroelectrics, piezoelectrics, and semiconductors for the development of devices, such as micro-electro-mechanical systems, nonvolatile memories, microwave dielectrics, and display devices; Material arquitecture and charge transport in solid state ionics for rechargeable Li ion batteries; investigations using laser Raman, infrared, dielectric, and photo-luminescence spectroscopies; phonon dynamics.
