Scientists and engineers from the Institute of Physics of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine are partner participants in the international project “TransFerr”
The main goal of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie research and innovation staff mobility project "Transition metal oxides with metastable phases: a way towards superior ferroic properties" (HORIZON 2020 MSCA-RISE-2017, No. 778070) is development of advanced bulk and nanosized ferroics and multiferroics with superior ferroelectric, ferromagnetic, and magnetoelectric properties.
The properties of ferroics, such as oxide manganites and ferrites, can be controlled by tuning their chemical composition, structure, stoichiometry, defects, and, most important, size effects. The ferroics with optimized functional properties will be promising for advanced nanoelectronics and optoelectronics.
Ukrainian team performs the modeling of the structural and physical properties of the macro- and nanosized ferroics, as well as we conduct Raman spectra measurements and prepare composites from these materials.
The TransFerr project also aims to create an international interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers from different disciplines (physics, chemistry, and materials sciences) and countries (Poland, Germany, Lithuania, Portugal, Ukraine and Belarus) to provide a continuous and effective transfer of fundamental knowledge and practical skills.
