Abstract Domain aspects of multi-ferroics are reviewed, i.e. of materials, in which two or all three of the properties ‘ferroelectricity.’ ‘ferromagnetism’ and ‘ferroelasticity’ occur simultaneously in the same phase, and in which the magnetic point group has been reliably established by magnetoelectric, optical, dielectric, magnetic and related studies on single crystals and single domains. Nearly only members of the boracite crystal family are concerned, whereas for the perovskite family and… 
Multiferroics: a magnetic twist for ferroelectricity.
It is found that even a weak magnetoelectric interaction can lead to spectacular cross-coupling effects when it induces electric polarization in a magnetically ordered state.
Computational Design of a New Magnetic Ferroelectric
Multiferroic magnetoelectrics are materials which are both ferromagnetic and ferroelectric in the same phase [1]. As a result they have a spontaneous magnetization that can be switched by an applied
The Renaissance of Magnetoelectric Multiferroics
Magnetoelectric multiferroics combine ferromagnetism (a spontaneous magnetization that can be switched by a magnetic field) and ferroelectricity (a spontaneous electric polarization that can be
The investigation of the magnetodielectric effect in multiferroic ferroelectromagnets
Abstract.In multiferroic ferroelectromagnets, microscopic coupling interaction between the ferroelectric and magnetic order results in the macroscopic correlation between the dielectric and

Spin-Driven Ferroelectricity and Magneto-Electric Effects in Frustrated Magnetic Systems
The interplay between magnetism and electricity in matter has become a central issue of condensed-matter physics. This review focuses on the ferroelectricity induced by magnetic order mostly in
Magnetodielectric effects in the ferroelectric ferromagnet BiMnO3
The changes in the dielectric constant of perovskite BiMnO3 at about TC, which are induced by the magnetic ordering as well as by the application of magnetic fields, indicate that coupling exists


Evidence for the magnetoelectric effect in nickel-bromine boracite, Ni3B7O13 Br
Abstract A ferromagnetic/ferroelectric/ferroelastic phase, consistent with point group m'm2’ and Tc(f. m.)= 17K, has been identified by measurements of the magnetoelectric coefficient α32, peak value
Secondary ferroics and domain-divided piezoelectrics
Abstract Ferroic crystals contain domain states which can be switched by suitably chosen external forces. The domains in a primary ferroic differ in spontaneous polarization (ferroelectricity)
Optical domain, ferroic coupling and birefringence studies of the magnetic phase transition in Fe-I boracite
The magnetic phase transition 3ml with the Curie temperature TC=30K has been studied by means of optical domain analysis and birefringence measurements using polarized light microscopy. The domain
Some Properties of Ferromagnetoelectric Nickel‐Iodine Boracite, Ni3B7O13I
Ferroelectricity and weak ferromagnetism have been found to set on simultaneously in Ni3B7O13I at about 64°K. This is evidenced by dielectric hysteresis, spontaneous Faraday effect, quadratic
Characterisation of some magnetic and magnetoelectric properties of ferroelectric Pb(Fe1/2Nb1/2)O3
The magnetic properties of Pb(Fe1/2Nb1/2)O3 were studied by using neutron diffraction on a polydomain single crystal and by making susceptibility measurements on a single ferroelec. domain. A Neel

Possible Species of “Ferroelastic” Crystals and of Simultaneously Ferroelectric and Ferroelastic Crystals
It is convenient to grasp crystals of a kind as “ferroelastic” crystals. They are defined analogously to “ferroelectric” crystals, mechanical strain and stress in the former corresponding to electric
Europium barium titanate—A magnetic ferroelectric compound
Eu1/2Ba1/2TiO3 was prepared with the intent of building both ferromagnetism and ferroelectricity into the same crystal lattice. Ceramic samples prepared at 1500 °C exhibit a magnetization of 59 emu/g
