This multidisciplinary proposal aims to contribute to a significant qualitative and quantitative advancement in the synthesis, characterization, modeling and applications of ferrous, monolithic and nanostructured materials, seeking to enhance their properties for applications in renewable and magnetoelectrical energy converters. The generation and use of energy from renewable sources is a strategic area for the country from a scientific, technological and economic point of view. Single-phase or composite ferrous materials will be developed for use in mechanical (electromechanical) or solar (photovoltaic) energy converters in electrical energy. By means of an experimental approach (synthesis, processing and characterization) and theoretical (phenomenological modeling and Density Functional Theory) we intend to investigate multiferroic and ferroelectric materials, aiming at the maximization of some of its physical properties for the application in energy converting devices. Relevant contributions are expected in three fundamental pillars in the development of new materials and devices: methods of processing monocrystalline and nanostructured (bulk and two-dimensional) materials; modeling of fundamental properties (structure / microstructure-property correlation) and prospective development of prototypes of new sensors, actuators and energy converters. The results of these surveys, due to their comprehensive and innovative nature, will certainly contribute to the development of new materials. ** This project is part of the INCT "Nanostructured Ferrous Materials for Energy Converters", INCT Call - MCTI / CNPq / CAPES / FAPs nº 16/2014) " (AU)
