Walter Schottky Prize 2006 of the German Physical Society (DPG) for Heisenberg scholarship holders

For the first time, Dr. Manfred Fiebig and his colleagues were able to demonstrate experimentally at the MBI that the electrical and magnetic properties of multiferroics are spatially related. Fiebig demonstrated that the magnetic structures of multiferroics can also be selectively generated and reoriented with electric fields. More information: see  press release of the Forschungsverbund
