Multiferroics are a unique class of materials where magnetic and ferroelectric orders coexist. The research on multiferroics contributes significantly to the fundamental understanding of the strong correlations between different material degrees of freedom and provides an energy-efficient route toward the electrical control of magnetism. While multiple ABO3 oxide perovskites have been identified as being multiferroic, their magnetoelectric coupling strength is often weak, necessitating the… Expand

The evolution of multiferroics
Materials with a coexistence of magnetic and ferroelectric order — multiferroics — provide an efficient route for the control of magnetism by electric fields. The study of multiferroics dates back toExpand
Ferroelectricity from iron valence ordering in the charge-frustrated system LuFe2O4
Experimental evidence for ferroelectricity arising from electron correlations in the triangular mixed valence oxide, LuFe2O4 is reported, and resonant X-ray scattering measurements are used to determine the ordering of the Fe2+ and Fe3+ ions. Expand

Anion order in perovskite oxynitrides.
Investigation of the representative compounds SrMO(2)N (M = Nb, Ta) using neutron and electron diffraction revealed a robust 1O/2(O(0.5)N( 0.5)) partial anion order that directs the rotations of MO(4)N.(2) octahedra in the room-temperature superstructure. Expand
The origin of ferroelectricity in magnetoelectric YMnO3
This work identifies the nature of the ferroelectric phase transition in the hexagonal manganite, YMnO3, using a combination of single-crystal X-ray diffraction, thorough structure analysis and first-principles density-functional calculations, and suggests an avenue for designing novel magnetic ferroelectrics.
