Wolfgang Kleemann is professor of experimental and applied physics at the University of Duisburg-Essen. He received his Ph.D. in 1968 from the University of Göttingen and became professor at the Universities of Paderborn (1975) and Duisburg (since 1982). His perpetual research interest in both magnetism (ferro- and antiferromagnetic crystals, multilayers and nanoparticles) and ferroelectricity (crystals, films and ceramics) brought him to Universities like Paris-Sud, UC Santa Barbara, RIKEN Tokyo, SNU Seoul, and UFMG Belo Horizonte as a visiting professor. His activities have recently become focused on magnetoelectric and multiferroic materials.


Switching magnetism with electric fields

The magnetic state of a multiferroic device can be controlled purely by an electric field—a property that could greatly reduce overheating in data storage devices. Read More »
