Magnetoelectric Correlations in Multiferroic Manganites Revealed by Nonlinear Optics

  • Chapter

Part of the Advances in Solid State Physics book series (ASSP,volume 46)

Abstract

A variety of magnetoelectric (ME) effects are observed in multiferroic hexagonal RMnO3 with R = Sc, Y, In, Ho-Lu. A passive ME effects occurs in the form of a pronounced but non-controllable coupling of magnetic and ferroelectric domains. An active ME effects is revealed in the form of a magnetic or electric field controling the magnetic structure. Local ME effects are detected within the magnetic domain walls. The effects are observed by linear and, in particular, non-linear magnetooptical techniques and explained microscopically by the interplay of magnetic superexchange, domain-wall magnetization, and ferroelectric distortion.
