Evidence for room-temperature multiferroicity in a compound with a giant axial ratio.
In the search for multiferroic materials magnetic compounds with a strongly elongated unit-cell (large axial ratio c/a) have been scrutinized intensely. However, none was hitherto proven to have aExpand

Investigation of induced Pt magnetic polarization in Pt/Y3Fe5O12 bilayers
Using X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) measurements, we explore the possible existence of induced magnetic moments in thin Pt films deposited onto the ferrimagnetic insulator yttrium ironExpand

Comment on "Pt magnetic polarization on Y3Fe5O12 and magnetotransport characteristics"
In a recent Letter [Y.M. Lu et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 110, 147207 (2013)], Lu et al. reported on "ferromagneticlike transport properties" of thin films of Pt, deposited ex situ via sputtering on theExpand

Advanced spectroscopic synchrotron techniques to unravel the intrinsic properties of dilute magnetic oxides: the case of Co:ZnO
The use of synchrotron-based spectroscopy has revolutionized the way we look at matter. X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) using linear and circular polarized light offers a powerful toolbox ofExpand

Enhanced orbital magnetism in Fe(50)Pt(50) nanoparticles.
X-ray absorption and magnetic circular dichroism spectra at both the Fe and Pt L(3,2) edges were measured on wet-chemically synthesized monodisperse Fe(50)Pt(50) particles with a mean diameter of 6.3Expand

Iridates from the molecular side
New exotic phenomena have recently been discovered in oxides of paramagnetic Ir4+ ions, widely known as ‘iridates'. Their remarkable properties originate from concerted effects of the crystal field,Expand

Tuning the magnetic anisotropy of Co nanoparticles by metal capping
The magnetic anisotropy of Co clusters with diameters ranging from 1.1 nm to 4.5 nm turns out to be significantly larger than in bulk and strongly increasing with decreasing cluster size. TheExpand

X-ray magnetochiral dichroism: a new spectroscopic probe of parity nonconserving magnetic solids.
We report the first experimental detection of x-ray magnetochiral dichroism in magnetoelectric Cr2O3. This dichroism, which does not require any polarized x-ray beam, is related to the time-reversalExpand
