The University of Pittsburgh announced that Pitt innovators were issued five U.S. patents in November 2019.

Featured Patent: U.S. 10,490,331 “Oxide Interface Displaying Electronically Controllable Ferromagnetism”

Jeremy Levy, distinguished professor of condensed matter physics, and colleagues, have achieved a breakthrough in the physics of materials with their invention of a new class of multilayer materials with electrically switchable ferromagnetic states. This can have broad impact on devices which rely on the magnetic state of materials, such as magnetic storage devices.
