The target of this project is the development of epoch-making multi-functional materials based on ferroic fluids, such as nematic and/or columnar ferroelectrics, as well as their novel application as devices. The consortium consists of four teams, one from Japan and three from Visegrad countries. To maximize the synergetic effect in the collaborative research among these four teams, they set three ambitious and strategic subjects as the end-of project goals, according to each team’s field of expertise; (1) Development of a new class of ferroic fluid materials; (2) Design of hybrid, organic-based mutliferroic materials with atomic precision, based on the ferroic fluids; (3) Application of these ferroic fluids for nano-devices, such as highperformance organic solar cells and/or high density memories
