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 [...]

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 [...]
