Nicola Spaldin receives the 2015 Körber Prize

Professor Nicola Spaldin, group leader in MARVEL, and professor for Material Theory at ETH Zurich, has been awarded the Körber Prize, one of the most prestigious scientific awards in Europe. 

Nicola Spaldin is to receive the Körber Prize for the creation of a new family of crystalline compounds: multiferroics, materials that respond to both electric and magnetic fields. The magnetic structure in these crystals can be influenced by applying electric fields. Multiferroics are thus destined for ultra-fast, extremely small and highly energy-efficient computers of the future.
