Black Holes and Wormholes: Tunneling Our Way into Another Universe?

Black holes and wormholes have long become a fixture in sci-fi films where space travelers use them to hop about the universe. But what are these holes, and how feasible is travel through spacetime? What incredible truth lurks behind science fiction? News agency RIA Novosti put these questions to physicists from Russian universities that participate in Project 5-100.

IKBFU Physicist Takes Part in Promising Research in Multiferroic Materials

Nowadays, multiferroics attract much attention of the scientific community. Dr Vadim Sikolenko, a researcher from IKBFU Research and Educational Centre Functional Nanomaterials and Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (Dubna, Russia), explains: “Multiferroics are materials that exhibit both ferromagnetic and ferroelectric properties switchable at high temperature. It still remains a challenge to develop multiferroic composites with large magnetization and polarization and strong coupling between them at room temperature. Such compounds could have great potential for application in industrial and consumer electronics”.
