Electronic Materials

Our research, undertaken in close cooperation with our partner institute at RWTH Aachen University, focuses on the nanoelectronics of the future. To this end, we investigate electronic phenomena in oxides and electronically-active organic molecules.

Success for PGI: Funding for Five Projects in the DFG Priority Programme “Memristive Devices Toward Smart Technical Systems”

Five research projects involving the Peter Grünberg Institute are set to receive funding from the German research foundation Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), as part of the DFG Priority Programme SPP2262 “Memristive Devices Toward Smart Technical Systems”.

Antiferromagnetically ordered systems have previously been considered, as expressed by Louis Néel in his Nobel Prize Lecture, to be “interesting but useless”. However, as they potentially promise faster operation, enhanced stability, and higher integration, they could one day become a game changer for new spintronic devices.
