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 ...

  • These perovskites display superior piezoelectric properties in areas where the phase of their crystal structure abruptly changes. - latest science and technology news stories

  • "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." - latest science and technology news stories

  • Ramesh and his group are now testing their strain-driven piezoelectric technique on other perovskites. - latest science and technology news stories

  • Neither dense post-spinel polymorphs nor silicate perovskites, however, have been discovered in nature and confirmed as new mineral.
