Microtransfer setup for assembling smart stacks

Recent, innovatory 2-Dimensional materials, such as graphene (a monolayer of carbon atoms) or transition metal di-chalcogenides (MoS2, WSe2...), can be assembled into a variety of heterostructures. These socalled “van der Waals” structures are opening up new fields for exploratory physics and applications. At the Institut NÉEL, we have developed a micro-transfer platform with a lateral mechanical-alignment precision of order one micron, which we use for making stacks of different 2D exfoliated materials.

New multiferroics inspired by minerals

Multiferroics are materials that show both magnetism and ferroelectricity (spontaneous electric polarization) at the same time. A coupling of electric fields and magnetic fields in materials was speculated as early as 1894 by Pierre Curie. However, magnetism and ferroelectricity are generally antagonistic properties and multiferroics have long remained rather rare “creatures”. Recently, it has been understood that some specific types of magnetic order can induce ferroelectricity, and this has boosted the search for corresponding compounds. Full text.
