Latest Multiferroics Stories
A team of Canadian-Bulgarian researchers has developed a promising novel approach for magnetic cooling that's far more efficient and "greener" than today's standard fluid-compression form of refrigeration.
Like turning coal to diamond, adding pressure to an electrical material enhances its properties.
Although scientists have been aware that magnetism and electricity are two sides of the same proverbial coin for almost 150 years, researchers are still trying to find new ways to use a material’s electric behavior to influence its magnetic behavior, or vice versa.
The prospect of electronics at the nanoscale may be even more promising with the first observation of metallic conductance in ferroelectric nanodomains by researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
In many ionic materials, including the oxides, surfaces created along specific directions can become electrically charged.
For the first time, engineering researchers have been able to watch in real time the nanoscale process of a ferroelectric memory bit switching between the 0 and 1 states.
An international team of researchers from France and Germany has developed a new material which is the first to react magnetically to electrical fields at room temperature.
HZB scientists observe how a material at room temperature exhibits a unique property.
By combining two frontier technologies, spintronics and straintronics, a team of researchers from Virginia Commonwealth University has devised perhaps the world's most miserly integrated circuit.
New multiferroic mechanism could lead to next-generation memory and sensing devices.
