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 [...]
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 [...]
