We consider the effects of toroidal moment corrections to the acoustic susceptibility tensor of a material that is simultaneously ferroelectric and a canted antiferromagnet (multiferroic).
Instead of lining up neatly (as in magnets and in an antiferromagnet, left, seen in superconductors), the spins move around uncomfortably thanks to quantum fluctuations that keep them twitching even at absolute zero.
An antiferromagnet is a special kind of ferrimagnet where adjacent spin moments completely cancel.
For our experimental setup, in which the applied field is parallel to the gamma-ray direction, this is, the theoretical area ratio for an antiferromagnet in the spin-flop state.
One of the most innovative structures he introduced involves an "artificial antiferromagnet," a magnetic multilayered material with zero net magnetic moment yet with a ferromagnetic interface.
The study, titled, Direct observation of the Higgs amplitude mode in a two-dimensional quantum antiferromagnet near the quantum critical point, was published in Nature Physics.
We consider the effects of non-linear (second order) corrections to the high-frequency susceptibilities of a material that is simultaneously ferroelectric and a canted antiferromagnet (multiferroic).
The exchange coupling between a ferromagnet (FM) and an antiferromagnet (AF) creates a magnetic bias field on the ferromagnet and thereby controls its magnetization characteristics.
