Local bias induced ferroelectricity in manganites with competing charge and orbital order states.

Abstract

Perovskite-type manganites, such as Pr1-xCaxMnO3, La1-xCaxMnO3 and La1-xSrxMnO3 solid solutions, are set forth as a case study of ferroelectricity formation mechanisms associated with the appearance of site- and bond-centered orbital ordering which breaks structural inversion symmetry. Even though the observation of macroscopic ferroelectricity may be… (More)
