Title: Collaborative Research: Polymeric Multiferroics

Abstract

The goal of this project is to investigate room temperature magnetism and magnetoelectric coupling of polymeric multiferroics. A new family of molecular charge-transfer crystals has been emerged as a fascinating opportunity for the development of all-organic electrics and spintronics due to its weak hyperfine interaction and low spin-orbit coupling; nevertheless, direct observations of room temperature magnetic spin ordering have yet to be accomplished in organic charge-transfer solids. Furthermore, room temperature magnetoelectric coupling effect hitherto known multiferroics, is anticipated in organic donor-acceptor complexes because of magnetic field effects on charge-transfer dipoles, yet this is also unexplored. The PI seeks to fundamental understanding of the control of organic crystals to demonstrate and explore room temperature multiferroicity. The experimental results have been verified through the theoretical modeling.

  • The research was directed towards finding new functional materials, mainly polymeric. Main accomplishment consisit of indentifying mulktiferroic polymers and a shape memory alloy featuring an ultralong fatigue life of 10 million cycles.
  • The objective of this work is to collaborate with EpiSolar to develop and test processes that are consistent with the goals and milestones of an NREL FPace1 (Foundational Program to Advance Cell Efficiency) project entitled 'High-Temperature, Roll-to-Roll (RTR) CdTe Superstrate Devices Using Flexible Glass.' The primary milestone for this CRADA relates to demonstration of a 15% efficient laboratory device.
  • The US Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Energy Research (OER) sponsors programs designed to encourage and support interaction between US colleges and universities and DOE research facilities. Faculty members, graduate students, undergraduates, and recent postgraduates participate in research and receive advanced training at DOE laboratories. Staff members from DOE laboratories visit campuses to deliver energy-related lectures and participate in seminars and classroom discussions. Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) has been involved in the developemnt and administration of these collaborative research programs since their inception. During FY 1987, ORAU administered appointments for the Office of Energy Research under the followingmore » two umbrella programs: University/DOE Laboratory Cooperative Program (Lab Co-op); Science and Engineering Research Semester (SERS). In addition, ORAU participated in a project to collect and assess information from individuals who had held research appointment as undergraduate students during a four-year period from 1979 to 1982. All of these activities are summarized in this report.« less
  • The report is designed as an overview of more than five years of collaborative work intended to: (1) Provide EPA scientists with a ready means of access to University faculty and facilities and to enhance the intensity and frequency of interactions between EPA and UNC scientists; (2) Enrich the scientific milieu for EPA scientists; (3) Perform collaborative research in areas relevant to EPA's mission, especially in the air program; (4) Undertake research that could not be readily accomplished by EPA with its existing personnel - both in the area of development and application of techniques, and in the performance ofmore » research; (5) Provide access to diseased as well as normal human subjects, including children, in order to study sensitive as well as normal populations challenged with inhaled pollutants in highly controlled environmental exposure chambers.« less
