Description

"a very detailed book on multiferroics that will be useful for PhD students and researchers interested in this emerging field of materials science" -Dr. Wilfrid Prellier, Research Director, CNRS, Caen, France Multiferroics has emerged as one of the hottest topics in solid state physics in this millennium. The coexistence of multiple ferroic/antiferroic properties makes them useful both for fundamental studies and practical applications such as revolutionary new memory technologies and next-generation spintronics devices. This book provides an historical introduction to the field, followed by a summary of recent progress in single-phase multiferroics (type-I and type-II), multiferroic composites (bulk and nano composites), and emerging areas such as domain walls and vortices. Each chapter addresses potential technological implications. There is also a section dedicated to theoretical approaches, both phenomenological and first-principles calculations.

Contents

Introduction and overview of the field. Type-I multiferroic systems. Type-II multiferroic systems. Multiferroic composites. Theoretical study of multiferroic materials. Applications of multiferroic materials. Emerging phenomena in multiferroics.
