Läuten Multiferroika bald neues Zeitalter in der Elektronik ein?

Multiferroika könnten ein neues Zeitalter in der Elektronik einläuten, insbesondere in der elektronischen Schaltungs-, Sensor- und Speichertechnologie. Denn in Multiferroika treten Magnetismus (die Ausrichtung mikroskopischer Magnete) und Ferroelektrizität (die Ausrichtung elektrischer Dipole) simultan auf.
