Building the Next Generation of Efficient Computers – Multiferroic Materials

As wireless and mobile systems advance, thermal management technologies will be crucial to their development.

As wireless and mobile systems advance, thermal management technologies will be crucial to their development.

Bryan Huey, a UConn researcher, has uncovered new information about the kinetic properties of multiferroic materials that could be the key breakthrough scientists have been looking for to create a new generation of low-energy, highly efficient, instant-on computers.

Materials known as multiferroics have shown great promise for creating a low-energy memory storage and processing device because they have the rare ability to be both magnetic and ferroelectric, meaning they can be sensitive to magnetic and electric fields simultaneously.

The findings were featured in the Dec. 17, 2014 issue of Nature, considered one of the world’s most prestigious scientific research journals.Read more at: http://today.uconn.edu/blog/2015/01/building-the-next-generation-of-efficient-computers/
