In a new study researchers have found a new material ‘Magnetoelectric Multiferroic’ it can also be called as a future energy efficient material.
This material have a efficiency which may leads to a power life booster for electronic gadgets and this will also increase the life of our future computers up to this much that, the coming future gadgets will work for more than a day, a week and who know may be a month just on a single charge.
This amazing material is developed in the University of Michigan, can be say as a new generation computer device and just by adding this energy efficient future material, the same computer will become 100 times more efficient and require extremely less energy than today’s world computers.
Ramamoorthy Ramesh, who is an Indian origin author of the study said, “Electronics are the fastest growing consumers of energy worldwide,” from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in US.
“Today, about five percent of our total global energy consumption is spent on electronics and that’s projected to grow to 40 to 50 percent by 2030 if we continue at the current pace and if there are no major advances in the field that lead to lower energy consumption,” added by Ramesh.
According to the research team this energy efficient device is relies on “Planar Rumpling” phenomenon which combines electric and magnetic properties at room temperature.”
This phenomenon actually work by coming together like sandwiches and individual layers of atoms, producing a thin film with magnetic polarity that can be flipped from positive to negative or vice-versa with small pulses of electricity.
John Heron, an assistant professor at Michigan University said, “Before this work, there was only one other room-temperature multiferroics whose magnetic properties could be controlled by electricity,” Heron who has also worked on this material with the other researchers at Cornell University.
“That electrical control is what excites electronics makers, so this is a huge step forward,” Heron added.
These Room- temperature multiferroics require much less power to read and write data than today’s semiconductor-based devices and therefore they meant to be a hotly pursued goal.
And the best thing about it is that, when the power is shut off the data will not vanish.
