Among the topics are single-phase type-I multiferroics: resolving the seemingly contradictive requirements for ferroelectrity and magnetism, bulk magnetoelectric composites: direct and converse magnetoelectric effects, the Landau theory of multiferroics, first-principle calculations for multiferroic BiFeO3, and topological vortex defects in an improper ferroelectric.
Known as a magnetoelectric multiferroic material, it combines electrical and magnetic properties at room temperature and relies on a phenomenon called "planar rumpling.
We point out that theoretical formalism developed in this work uses only two effective tensors: permittivity and permeability (25), unlike the bianisotropic response [4-7], which uses four effective tensors (permittivity, permeability, and two magnetoelectric tensors).
Amongst such materials, the one that exhibit simultaneous presence of ferromagnetic / antiferromagnetic and ferroelectric / antiferroelectric properties are known as magnetoelectric materials.
Another method for increasing the efficiency of nanoparticle endocytosis is known as magnetoelectric perforation.
