Functional Materials
Ultrafast Laser Plasma Implantation (ULPI) to take IT beyond the electronic age
Functional Materials : 28 December, 2014
A £5.2 million project led by the University of Leeds is aiming to transform data communications with a new generation of photonic microchips. The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has announced funding for a multi-university research programme and a pilot manufacturing facility, to be based at Leeds, that will develop the materials needed for the new class of "photonic integrated circuits’.
 
Multiferroics - magnetic properties influenced by electric voltage - open up new sensor prospects
Functional Materials : 02 December, 2013
In the extraordinary materials called "multiferroics’, electric and magnetic excitations are closely linked. Scientists at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) have now shown in an experiment that magnetic properties and excitations can be influenced by an electric voltage. This opens up completely new possibilities for electronics at high frequencies. There are many ideas for future applications - wherever it is desirable to combine the respective advantages of magnetic and electric effects, the new magneto-electric materials could be used. This could lead to new kinds of amplifiers, transistors or data storage devices. Also, highly sensitive sensors could be built with electromagnon technology.
 
Chameleon-like
Functional Materials : 06 January, 2009
A new material created by research scientists can rapidly shrink or swell to change the colour of light that it scatters.
