Room-temperature multiferroic behavior in layer-structured Aurivillius phase ceramics

By |2020-08-27T16:07:19+01:00August 27th, 2020|

A new paper, co-authored by Electrosciences, is published in Applied Physics Letters. Multiferroics that simultaneously exhibit ferroelectricity and ferromagnetism have recently attracted great attention due to their potential application in next generation electronic devices. However, only a few single-phase multiferroic materials exhibit ferroelectric and ferromagnetic orders at room temperature. Recently, some bismuth layer-structured Aurivillius compounds [...]

In Situ Electric-Field Study of Surface Effects in Domain Engineered Crystals by Grazing Incidence Diffraction

By |2020-08-28T20:10:12+01:00August 27th, 2020|

A new paper, co-authored by Electrosciences, is published in Crystals. In this work, we present a grazing incidence X-ray diffraction study of the surface of a 0.24Pb(In1/2Nb1/2)O3-Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-PbTiO3 (PIN-PMN-PT) [011] poled rhombohedral single crystal. The near surface microstructure (the top several tens to hundreds of unit cells) was measured in situ under an applied electric field. [...]

Higher efficiency sonar supported by new measurements

By |2020-06-08T12:40:58+01:00June 8th, 2020|

A new paper, co-authored by Electrosciences, points to new ways to control high powered sonar projectors using some of the newest single crystal piezoelectric materials that are becoming commercially available. Experimental measurements taken by Electrosciences in collaboration with the UK XMaS beamline at the ESRF, France, highlights the requirement to control the pre-stress needed to [...]

Is Fe doped BTO multiferroic?

By |2020-03-13T09:22:43+00:00March 13th, 2020|

New work just publsihed in APL-Materials shows that iron doped ferroelectric barium titanate exhibits multiferroic behaviour. New techniques developed under the European Metrology project 'ADVENT' by Electrosciences Ltd and the XMaS beamline at the ESRF (Synchrotron beamline in Grenoble, France) have shed new light on these materials. Fe-dped BTO ferroelectric response with applied magnetic [...]

Tiny piezoelectronic device accelerates CMOS chips

By |2019-12-20T16:14:10+00:00December 20th, 2019|

Electrosciences is partner on EU project PETMEM The electronics industry needs a new CMOS transistor technology, and the EU-funded PETMEM project undertook efforts to develop it. The resulting alternative, called a piezoelectronic transduction (PET) transistor, is predicted to be faster and more energy efficient than conventional CMOS transistor alternatives. The project's key outcomes are reviewed [...]

Room temperature multiferroic

New paper published: 'Bi3.25La0.75Ti2.5Nb0.25(Fe0.5Co0.5)0.25O12, a single phase room temperature multiferroic' J. Mater. Chem. C, 2018, 6, 2733 DOI: 10.1039/c8tc00161h Multiferroics (MFs) have attracted great research interest due to the coexistence of ferroelectric and magnetic ordering, as well as magnetoelectric (ME) coupling. At present, there is a very limited number of single-phase MFs known and these [...]
