Electrical and Mechanical Manipulation of Ferromagnetic Properties in Polycrystalline Nickel Thin Film


The ferromagnetic properties of a 35 nm polycrystalline nickel thin film deposited on a single-crystal, optical, ferroelectric lithium niobate substrate are magnetoelectrically tunable. The coercive field of the nickel film, which has low magnetocrystalline anisotropy and appropriate magnetoelasticity, changes by about 80% owing to the anisotropic strain… (More)
