In this article, we performed symmetry analysis of perovskite-based multiferroics: bismuth ferrite (BiFeO3)-like, orthochromites (RCrO3), and Ruddlesden–Popper perovskites (Ca3Mn2O7-like), being the typical representatives of multiferroics of the trigonal, orthorhombic, and tetragonal crystal families, and we explored the effect of crystallographic distortions on magnetoelectric properties. We determined the principal order parameters for each of the considered structures and obtained their…

Multiferroic order parameters in rhombic antiferromagnets RCrO3

The presented analysis makes it possible to explain experimentally observed polarization reversal and the concomitant reorientation of spins in a series of RCrO3 compounds and to predict the possible scenarios of phase transitions in R CrO3.

The involvement of Pna21 phase in the multiferroic characteristics of La/Lu co-substituted BiFeO3 ceramics

Rare earth ion (RE)-substitution has been recognized as an effective way for improving multiferroic properties especially for realizing the electric field-controlled magnetism in BiFeO3 ceramics,

Structural, magneto transport and magnetic properties of Ruddlesden–Popper La2-2xSr1+2xMn2O7 (0.42≤x≤0.52) layered manganites

The magneto transport of Ruddlesden–Popper, La2-2xSr1+2xMn2O7 (0.42≤x≤0.52), 2-dimensional bilayered manganites have been investigated in a broad temperature range. The samples have been synthesized

Magnetoelectric interactions and phase transitions in a new class of multiferroics with improper electric polarization

Symmetry analysis of magnetoelectric interactions in rare-earth orthoferrites and orthochromites has been performed. It has been shown that symmetry allows the appearance of spontaneous electric

Structure, Magnetism, and Properties of Ruddlesden−Popper Calcium Manganates Prepared from Citrate Gels

Ruddlesden−Popper (RP) phases with the formula (CaO)(CaMnO3)n, where n = 1, 2, 3, and ∞, have been prepared using the Pechini citrate gel process at temperatures as low as 900 °C under flowing

Composite domain walls in a multiferroic perovskite ferrite.

It is shown that GdFeO(3), one of the most orthodox perovskite oxides, is not only a weak ferromagnet but also possesses a ferroelectric ground state, in which the ferro electric polarization is generated by the striction through the exchange interaction between the Gd and Fe spins.

Exchange bias in multiferroic Ca3Mn2O7 effected by Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction

Ruddlesden-Popper manganite Ca3Mn2O7 has been synthesized in single phase orthorhombic structure with Cmcm space group. Temperature dependent magnetization M(T) shows that Ca3Mn2O7 undergoes long

Experimental demonstration of hybrid improper ferroelectricity and the presence of abundant charged walls in (Ca,Sr)3Ti2O7 crystals.

The first experimental demonstration of room-temperature switchable polarization in bulk crystals of Ca3Ti2O7, as well as Sr-doped Ca3 Ti 2O7 is provided, which provides new research opportunities for new stable ferroelectrics of Ruddlesden-Popper compounds, and for meandering conducting domain walls formed by planar polarization.

Review of experimental progress of hybrid improper ferroelectricity in layered perovskite oxides

The primary order parameter of hybrid improper ferroelectricity (HIF) is not spontaneous polarisation but nonpolar modes such as oxygen octahedral rotations (OORs), antipolar, or even Jahn–Teller
