Multiferroism and enhancement of material properties across the morphotropic phase boundary of BiFeO 3-PbTiO 3

Strong phase-change magnetoelectric responses have been anticipated by a first-principles investigation of phases in the perovskite BiFeO3-BiCoO3 solid solution, specifically at the morphotropic phase boundary (MPB) between the multiferroic rhombohedral and tetragonal polymorphs. This might be a general property of multiferroic MPBs and a novel promising… CONTINUE READING
