Center for Translational Applications of Nanoscale Multiferroic Systems (TANMS)

The Center for Translational Applications of Nanoscale Multiferroic Systems (TANMS) works to engineer a revolution in miniature electromagnetic electronics through development of a new class of nanoscale multiferroic materials.

TANMS is funded by the National Science Foundation.

TANMS is a multi-institutional center including University of California, Los Angeles (lead) and Northeastern University.

Innovation Ecosystem

Beyond development of new, optimal electromagnetic materials, TANMS seeks to increase its capacity for innovation by integrating its research with commercialization, and fostering life-long skill development.

TANMS brings together diverse, domestic and international talents to stimulate their pursuit of engineering careers in the United States. Our education program works with students from K-20 to instill a thirst for technological innovation, and provide the appropriate entrepreneurial skills for long-term success in the engineering world.


We at TANMS seek to foster an array of individuals with our compelling diversity strategy- it aims at increasing the participation of individuals from traditionally under-represented groups in collaboration with source departments and schools to create a diverse, inclusive environment.
