What is TANMS?
The Nanosystems ERC for Translational Applications of Nanoscale Multiferroic Systems (TANMS) is a multi-institutional Engineering Research Center focusing on research, technology translation, and education associated with magnetism on the small scale. TANMS’s vision is to develop a fundamentally new approach coupling electricity to magnetism using engineered nanoscale multiferroic elements to enable increased energy efficiency, reduced physical size, and increased power output in consumer electronics. This new nanoscale multiferroic approach overcomes the scaling limitations present in the century-old mechanism to control magnetism that was originally discovered by Oersted in 1820. TANMS’s goals are to translate its research discoveries on nanoscale multiferroics to industry while seamlessly integrating a cradle-to-career education philosophy involving all of its students and future engineers in unique research and entrepreneurial experiences.
