Oxides are a very rich category of materials and display a broad range of physical phenomena such as dielectrics, superconductors, metals, ferroelectrics, ferromagnets, piezoelectrics etc. Therefore, many diverse functionalities can be achieved by using oxides. This lecture discusses the properties that form the basis of many interesting devices and systems based on functional oxides. Particular attention will be given to phenomena like resistive switching and oxides that show a metal to insulator transition.
