- n. Plural form of perovskite.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Wish me luck in managing to combine mega-afro blowout tensile strength with those copper perovskites while somehow ... somehow maintaining those pesky 2-to-3 metal-to-oxygen ratios and whatnot ...
Scientists noted that lanthanum-based perovskites worked best, because they could be doped with manganese, strontium, or cobalt to tune their functionality.
Anode electrode 11 is preferably a porous electrode comprising perovskites, metals and/or cermets.
These perovskites display superior piezoelectric properties in areas where the phase of their crystal structure abruptly changes.
"In principle, the strain-driven piezoelectric effect we have observed in bismuth ferrite should be generic to other lead-free perovskites as well," Ramesh says, "akin to chemically driven effects that are now well established in the manganites, cuprates and relaxors."
Ramesh and his group are now testing their strain-driven piezoelectric technique on other perovskites.
Neither dense post-spinel polymorphs nor silicate perovskites, however, have been discovered in nature and confirmed as new mineral.
