• Ferroelectricity in the multiferroic hexagonal manganites 

      Lilienblum, Martin; Lottermoser, Thomas; Manz, Sebastian; Selbach, Sverre Magnus; Cano, Andres; Fiebig, Manfred (Journal article, 2015)
      Since their discovery in 1963 the hexagonal manganites have consolidated their role as exotic ferroelectrics with astonishing functionalities. Their introduction as room-temperature device ferroelectrics was followed by ...
    • Local control of improper ferroelectric domains in YMnO 3 

      Kuerten, Lukas; Krohns, Stephan; Schoenherr, Peggy; Holeczek, Katharina; Pomjakushina, Ekaterina; Lottermoser, Thomas; Trassin, Morgan; Meier, Dennis Gerhard; Fiebig, Manfred (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Improper ferroelectrics are described by two order parameters: a primary one, driving a transition to long-range distortive, magnetic, or otherwise nonelectric order, and the electric polarization, which is induced by the ...
    • Magnetoelectric inversion of domain patterns 

      Leo, Naemi; Carolus, Vera; White, Jonathan S.; Kenzelmann, Michel; Hudl, Matthias; Tolédano, Pierre; Honda, T.; Kimura, Tsuyoshi; Ivanov, S. A.; Weil, M.; Lottermoser, Thomas; Meier, Dennis; Fiebig, Manfred (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      The inversion of inhomogeneous physical states has great technological importance; for example, active noise reduction relies on the emission of an inverted sound wave that interferes destructively with the noise of the ...
    • A short history of multiferroics 

      Meier, Dennis Gerhard; Lottermoser, Thomas (Journal article, 2020)
      The realization that materials with coexisting magnetic and ferroelectric order open up efficient ways to control magnetism by electric fields unites scientists from different communities in the effort to explore the ...
