BACKGROUND

Professor Wuttig is an internationally recognized expert in the fields of ferromagnetic, ferroelectric and ferroelastic materials; reversible phase transformations, mutiferroics, magnetoelectrics, and nanomagnetism.

Before coming to Maryland, Professor Wuttig was associated with the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, Berlin; a lecturer in physics at the Gauss Ingenieur Schule, Berlin; an assisistant reseaarch professor and professor in the Departments of Metallurgy at theUniversity of Missouri–Rolla and the University of Illinois, respectively; and Director of the National Science Foundation's Metallurgy Program. He joined the University of Maryland's then-Department of Chemical and Nuclear Engineering in 1986, where he was the director of the Graduate Program in Materials Science, and in 1992 became the first Acting Chair of the then-Department of Materials and Nuclear Engineering. He has served as MSE's graduate program director since the late 1990s.

Professor Wuttig's recent and current research projects include the synthesis and characterization of magnetoelectric composites, organic multiferroics for spintronics, and the study of alloys with magnetostrictive properties. He has also been involved in the development of an all solid-state, elastocaloric cooling technology based on latent heat generated by the martensitic transition (change in crystal structure) of shape memory alloys, for which he, Takeuchi and Cui won the University of Maryland's Physical Sciences Invention of the Year in 2011. The highly-efficient system could potentially replace vapor-compression based air conditioners and refrigerators, which utilize hydroflourocarbons and hydro flourochlorocarbons (such as Freon) that are harmful to the environment.

 

 

Phase transformations, self-organized materials, magnetoelectrics, nanomagnetism.


​Overview of Research Interests

Smart materials are, usually, ferromagnetic, ferroelectric and ferroelastic (Shape Memory) materials that can be integrated into electronic circuits to feed back an external mechanical stimulus thereby rendering the material "smart." The Wuttig Group is interested in the science of the materials that are suitable for this purpose.

Ferroic materials and phase transformations: Of the three ferroics materials—ferro-magnetic, ferro-electric and ferro-elastic (also called martensite or Shape Memory Alloy)—the Wuttig Group is interested predominantly in the first and last. 

A subclass of the above is Multiferroics, which are materials which combine more than one ferroic property, e.g. magnetoelastics or ferromagnetic shape memory alloys. This subclass can be divided further into natural multiferroics, e.g. TbMn2O5, which is simultaneously ferroelectric and ferromagnetic and Ni2MnGa which is a ferromagnetic shape memory alloy. The second subclass contains multiferroics composites, e.g. magnetoelectric heterostructures.

For example, see: Lisfi, Abdellah; Pokharel, Sabin; Salamanca-Riba, Lourdes; Wuttig, Manfred, Magnetization Reversal in Epitaxial Highly Anisotropic CoFe2O4 Hetero-structures, accepted for presentation at MMM 2014 and publication in J. Appl. Phys.

Research on Magnetoelectric Composites (MECs)

The Wuttig Group's research on Magnetoelectric Composites (MECs) endeavors to synthesize and characterize these relatively new kinds of composites that are of interest as micro- and nano-electronic components and potential high density memories. Current efforts focus on self-organized MECs in which the ferromagnetic and ferroelectric components are arranged in a nano-periodic fashion without prior patterning. First results on anorganic MECs were published in Spinodal synthesis of a PZT/NFO magnetoelectric, Appl. Phys. Letters 91, 083501 (2007).

More recently Professor Wuttig and his colleagues have focused on organically self organized MECs. See S. Ren, R. M. Briber and M. Wuttig, Diblock Copolymer Based Self-Assembled Nano-Magneto-Electric, Applied Physics Letters, 93, 173507 (2008). This paper was selected for the November 17, 2008 issue of the Virtual Journal of Nanoscale Science & Technology.

Research on Organic Multiferroics

As of the beginning of 2012, has concentrated on organic multiferroics, which have great potential for spintronics. See Shenqiang Ren and Manfred Wuttig, Organic Exciton Multiferroics, Advanced Materials, online, Dec. 28 2011, DOI: 10.1002/adma.201104250.
