Multiferroics, showing simultaneous ordering of electrical and magnetic degrees of freedom, are remarkable materials as seen from both the academic and technological points of view. A prominent mechanism of multiferroicity is the spin-driven ferroelectricity, often found in frustrated antiferromagnets with helical spin order. There, as for conventional(More)
Magnetic and magnetoelectric excitations in the multiferroic TbMnO3 have been investigated at terahertz frequencies. Using different experimental geometries we can clearly separate the electroactive excitations (electromagnons) from the magnetoactive modes, i.e., antiferromagnetic resonances. Two antiferromagnetic resonances were found to coincide with(More)
We present a detailed dielectric study of the relaxation effects that occur in several perovskite rare-earth manganites, including the multiferroics TbMnO(3) and DyMnO(3). We demonstrate that the strong magnetocapacitive effects, observed for electrical fields E parallel c, are nearly completely governed by magnetic-state induced changes of the relaxation(More)
We report on neutron diffraction, thermal expansion, magnetostriction, dielectric, and specific heat measurements on polycrystalline FeCr2S4 in external magnetic fields. The ferrimagnetic ordering temperatures TC ≈ 170 K and the transition at TOO ≈ 10 K, which has been associated with orbital ordering, are only weakly shifted in magnetic fields up to 9 T.(More)
Polycrystalline samples of underdoped (Ba1−xKx)Fe2As2 (x ≤ 0.4) were synthesized and studied by x-ray powder diffraction, magnetic susceptibility, specific heat and Fe-Mössbauer-spectroscopy. The structural phase transition from tetragonal to orthorhombic lattice symmetry shifts towards lower temperatures, becomes less pronounced at x = 0.1-0.2 and is no(More)
