Structural evolution and ferroelectric (FE)-to-antiferroelectric (AFE) transition behaviors were observed in Bi1-δFe0.95Mn0.05O3 (100)-textured films with a carefully controlled Bi deficiency concentration δ. Raman spectra revealed an orthorhombic structural transition induced by Mn substitution. The polarization-electric field hysteresis loops and capacitance-voltage loops of Bi1-δFe0.95Mn0.05O3 films clearly demonstrated antiferroelectric behavior with increasing δ. The responses of the…

Room temperature ferromagnetism in BiFe1-xMnxO3 thin film induced by spin-structure manipulation
The evolution of crystal structure, spin structure, and macroscopic magnetization of manganese-substituted BiFeO3 (BiFe1−xMnxO3), a candidate for multiferroic materials, were investigated on bulk and
Structure dependence of ferroelectricity in high quality BiMnO3 epitaxial films
Epitaxial ${\mathrm{BiMnO}}_{3}$ (BMO) thin films were prepared on (001)-oriented ${\mathrm{SrTiO}}_{3}$ substrates with a ${\mathrm{SrRuO}}_{3}$ buffer layer using pulsed laser deposition. The
Structural investigation of (111) oriented (BiFeO3)(1-x)Λ/(LaFeO3)xΛ superlattices by X-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy
(BiFeO3)(1-x)Λ/(LaFeO3)xΛ superlattices (SLs) with varying x have been grown by pulsed laser deposition on (111) oriented SrTiO3 substrates. In order to obtain good epitaxy and flat samples, a

A change of the conduction mechanism also seems to take place from a bulk-limited to an interface-limited transport as x increases, which is attributed to the ferroelectric to paraelectric phase transition which is controlled with the increase of x.
0.6ST-0.4NBT thin film with low level Mn doping as a lead-free ferroelectric capacitor with high energy storage performance
Srx(Na0.5Bi0.5)1−xTi0.99Mn0.01O3 (x = 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, and 0.8) relaxor ferroelectric thin films were grown on Pt/Ti/SiO2/Si substrates by the Sol-Gel method. The influence of the Sr content on the

Structure and Magnetic Properties of BiFe0.75Mn0.25O3 Perovskite Prepared at Ambient and High Pressure
Solid solutions of BiFe1–xMnxO3 (0.0 ≤ x ≤ 0.4) were prepared at ambient pressure and at 6 GPa. The ambient-pressure (AP) phases crystallize in space group R3c similarly to BiFeO3. The high-pressure
Observation of structural transitions and Jahn–Teller distortion in LaMnO3-doped BiFeO3 thin films
Structural and functional properties of multiferroic BiFeO3 are currently under debate. We utilized Raman spectroscopy to characterize the structural properties of pure and up to 10mol% LaMnO3-doped
Nd-doped BiFeO3 ceramics with antipolar order

No evidence is found for any systematic variation of the electric or magnetic properties of BiFeO(3) depending on the transition metal dopant, suggesting that these properties are determined mainly by extrinsic effects arising from defects or grain boundaries.
A Strain-Driven Morphotropic Phase Boundary in BiFeO3
Electric field–dependent studies show that a tetragonal-like phase can be reversibly converted into a rhombohedral- like phase, accompanied by measurable displacements of the surface, making this new lead-free system of interest for probe-based data storage and actuator applications.
