Article
Multiferroic materials demonstrating coexistence of magnetic and ferroelectric orders are promising candidates for magnetoelectric devices. While understanding the underlying mechanism of interplaying of ferroic properties is important, tailoring their properties to make them potential candidates for magnetoelectric devices is challenging. Here, th...

The unprecedented attributes such as biocompatibility and flexibility of macromolecular piezoelectric polymer has triggered an immense interested in scientific society for their potential exploitation in implantable electronic devices. In the present article, a theoretical and experimental investigation is done to explore the polarization behavior...
Article
Research on topological defects in hexagonal manganites exposed uncovered properties of topologically protected domains and domain walls. Topological defects of h-REMnO3 oxides (RE=Lu-Dy and Sc, In) modify essential multiferroic properties. Despite wide research with single crystals of stoichiometric composition, for the case of polycrystalline cer...

We report an effect of giant surface modification of a 5.6 nm thick BaTiO₃ film grown on Si (100) substrate under poling by conductive tip of a scanning probe microscope (SPM). The surface can be locally elevated by about 9 nm under -20 V applied during scanning, resulting in the maximum strain of 160%. The threshold voltage for the surface modific...
Article
This study investigates the nanostructure of perovskite thin films, and its influence on magnetic properties. Epitaxial thin films of perovskite MnO3 with thickness ranging from nm to 320 nm were deposited on SrTiO3 (1 0 0) substrates using pulsed laser deposition techniques. X-ray diffraction, along with high-resolution transmission electron micro...

Self-doping of the h-LuMnxO3±δ (0.92 ≤ x ≤ 1.12) phase and changes in the sintering time are applied to investigate the formation and annihilation of antiphase ferroelectric (FE) domains in bulk ceramics. The increase in the annealing time in sintering results in growth of FE domains, which depends on the type of vacancy, 6-fold vortices with dimen...
Article
Oxide multiferroic thin films and heterostructures offer a wide range of properties originated from intrinsic coupling between lattice strain and nanoscale magnetic/electronic ordering. La0.9Ba0.1MnO3 (LBM) thin-films and LBM/BaTiO3/ LBM (LBMBT) heterostructures were grown on single crystalline [100] silicon and [0001] Al2O3 using RF magnetron sput...
Article
A study on the underlying interaction mechanisms between lattice constants, magnetic and dielectric properties with inhomogeneities or internal interfaces in hexagonal, offstoichiometric LuMnO3 oxide is presented. By increasing Mn content the a-axis constant and volume of the unit cell, the antiferromagnetic (AFM) Néel temperature, TN, and frustrat...

We report polycrystalline BaTiO3 with cooperative magnetization behavior associated with the scarce presence of about 113 atomic ppm of Fe ions, clearly displaying magnetoelectric coupling with significant changes in magnetization (up toδM/M ≈32%) at the ferroelectric transitions. We find that Fe ions are segregated mostly at the interfaces between...

Epitaxial La0.7Sr0.3MnO3 (LSMO) thin films, with different thicknesses ranging from 20 to 330 nm, were deposited on (1 0 0)-oriented strontium titanate (STO) substrates by pulsed laser deposition, with their structure and morphology characterized at room temperature. The magnetic and electric transport properties of the as-processed thin films reve...

Question
I am trying to perform same experiment on my magnetic nanoparticles, but found some uncommon results in scanning in different directions. scanning from right to left and from left to right, we see a change in contrast of image, i.e. black and white. It seems like a shadow that appears all the time on all our particles. Can I ask how should I manage to solve the issue. more generally is it an artifact or this has a meaning and should be interpreted?
