Magnetic and ferroelectric metal: The two faces of tomorrow’s materials

4 septiembre 2015

Two properties are particularly sought after in materials for technology (for a variety of devices from sensors to computer memory, etc.): magnetism and ferroelectricity. Obtaining materials with both qualities is highly desirable. At the present time, these properties have shown to be almost entirely mutually exclusive, but a new study introduces an innovative method which may soon become reality.
