Multiferroic materials, coupling together electric and magnetic degrees of freedom, offer new routes to materials which may be utilised to provide lower power consuming devices (such as electronics). This project will investigate ferrotoroidal materials; a new class of multiferroics.
Further information can be found on our University of Kent scholarship page and on the EPSRC page.
