The prospect of controlling the magnetization (M) of a material is of great importance from the viewpoints of fundamental physics and future applications of emerging spintronics. A class of rare-earth orthoferrites RFeO3 (R is rare-earth element) materials exhibit striking physical properties of spin switching and magnetization reversal induced by(More)
The magnetic and specific-heat properties of the multiferroic YCrO<inf>3</inf> chromites have been investigated in a temperature range of 2&#x2013;300K. The results show that spin canted antiferromagnetic ordering of Cr<sup>3+</sup> (S=3/2) around 140K. At elevated temperature all susceptibility follow the Curie-Weiss law and the corresponding effective(More)
RFeO3 orthoferrites, where R is a rare-earth ion of the lanthanide series, are attracting attention mostly because of their promising fast spin dynamics. The magnetic properties of these materials seem to crucially depend on whether the magnetizations of the R and Fe ions' weak ferromagnetic (WFM) components are parallel or antiparallel to each other. Here,(More)
Spin reorientation is a magnetic phase transition in which rotation of the magnetization vector with respect to the crystallographic axes occurs upon a change in the temperature or magnetic field. For example, SmFeO3 shows a magnetization rotation from the c axis above 480 K to the a axis below 450 K, known as the Γ4 → Γ2 transition. This work reports the(More)
