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)
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)
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)
