At the current state of the art functional oxides offer exciting new possibilities for emerging technologies and possible applications in a wide variety of fields. The upcoming focus issue in physica status solidi RRL will concentrate on effects related to ionic motions and defect dynamics, and applications with the potential to lead to technological revolutions.

Topics covered in the Focus Issue include (but are not limited to):

• Properties of oxide point defects, ionic motions and dynamics
• Redox reactions and related phase transitions
• Applications and devices such as, for example
– oxide catalysts
– memristors, resistive switching memories, neuromorphic electronics
– ferroelectrics, multiferroics, spintronics, ferromagnetism
• Fundamental properties of functional oxides, e.g. structure, electronic properties, surfaces and interfaces
• Fabrication and characterization of oxide materials and structures
• Computational advances in modeling functional oxides

You are invited to submit your latest results as a letter or, after confirmation by the editors, write a short overview/review article. More detailed information here (PDF).

We hope to have sparked your interest, and look forward to receiving your manuscript soon. Please forward this information to your colleagues and collaborators. For questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
