New material with wide applications developed in Russia

14 Jul '17
Physicists at the Moscow Lomonosov State University (MSU) and the Kant Baltic Federal University, based in Russias westernmost enclave of Kaliningrad, have developed a new multiferroic, a ferromagnetic material whose magnetic field is permanent and always polarized electrically.

We have developed and studied a new functional composite material with manifest multiferroic properties, based on polymer matrix with ferromagnetic and ferroelectric microparticles added, said Dr. Nikolai Perov of MSUs solid-state physics department.

The materials we have come up with belong to multiferroics with a potentially broad range of applications. Unlike multiferroics we already knew of, these are very easy to produce; a sample of any shape and size can be made. The materials are supple and resistant to aggressive environments. As we develop the effort towards its economic applicability, similar materials with even better properties will be looked for, Dr. Perov added.
