Research and Markets: Ferroics and Multiferroics - 2012 Comprises Both Review Articles, and Research Papers on Various Themes; with Very Little Overlap


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Ferroics and Multiferroics" report to their offering.

Series: Solid State Phenomena, Volume 189

Special topic volume with invited peer reviewed papers only.

Multiferroics: that is, materials which simultaneously exhibit both ferromagnetism and ferroelectricity - and also often ferroelasticity - now attract considerable attention because of the interesting physics involved and their promise for important practical applications. Typical multiferroics belong to the perovskite group of transition metal oxides, and include rare-earth manganites and ferrites. Several new multiferroic systems have been developed, during recent years, which exhibit very strong coupling between the ferroelectric and magnetic degrees of freedom. The present volume comprises both review articles, and research papers on various themes; with very little overlap. The authors of the review papers have generally kept in mind the unfamiliarity, of the field of Ferroics and Multiferroics, to newcomers. They cover the historical development of the field, and add their own contributions.
