TDK Corp. and The University of Alabama Sign Research Agreement Related to Green Energy, Electronics

TDK Corp. and The University of Alabama have signed a two-pronged research agreement to address challenges associated with the growing electric-energy movement and the miniaturization of electronic components. The newly signed agreement between TDK and UA's Center for Materials for Information Technology, or MINT, will, among other things, bring TDK engineers to campus while researching long-term solutions to some of the biggest challenges faced by the industry. A portion of this collaboration between TDK and UA researchers seeks an alternative to high-potential magnetic materials, known as rare-earth materials, central to sustaining the electric energy movement. Combining the know-how of TDK with that of its MINT researchers creates an intellectual powerhouse to tackle these significant challenges. The agreement between TDK and UA is called the MINT-TDK Collaborative Project. It builds on existing collaborations between these two entities and others led by Dr. Takao Suzuki, director of UA's MINT Center. The new effort, which formally begins September 1, has two components, rare-earth free permanent magnets and soft magnet metal for high-frequency applications. Rare-earth materials make the most powerful and efficient magnets, and their size and reliability are well suited for electric motors that use their magnetic field as power. However, an estimated 95% of the world's supply of rare earth materials is produced in China.
