Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Describes some of the new broad-band techniques for obtaining spectra of dielectric permittivity and loss in ferroelectrics and related materials in the wavelength range of meter to submillimeter. Also presents spectroscopic results for many crystals, including low-dimensional and ferroelectric semiconductors, protonic conductors, quasi-one-dimensional H- bonded, and other order-disorder ferroelectrics. The methods and results are useful in developing new conducting materials for digital communications and radar systems. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
