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

By |2021-02-18T20:56:43+00:00August 27th, 2020|

A new paper, co-authored by Electrosciences, is published in Applied Physics Letters. Spin density of the system (isosurface level 1⁄4 0.005): O (red), Bi (pink), La (green), Ti (light blue), Co (dark blue), and Fe (yellow) atoms. Multiferroics that simultaneously exhibit ferroelectricity and ferromagnetism have recently attracted great attention due [...]

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

By |2021-02-18T21:03:31+00:00August 27th, 2020|

A new paper, co-authored by Electrosciences, is published in Crystals. Software tools developed to create HKL reciprocal lattice maps 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 [...]

Higher efficiency sonar supported by new measurements

By |2021-02-18T21:05:01+00:00June 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 [...]

Is Fe doped BTO multiferroic?

By |2021-02-18T21:06:07+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. Software tools developed [...]

Tiny piezoelectronic device accelerates CMOS chips

By |2021-02-18T21:08:06+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 [...]
