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.
