Epitaxial strain tunes spintronic behavior of multiferroic BiFeO3


Researchers in pursuit of higher density memories have set their sights on a new generation of spintronic materials, in which both electron charge and spin are used to convey information. The magnetoelectric multiferroic BiFeO3 (BFO), which exhibits direct coupling between ferroelectric and antiferromagnetic order, is particularly interesting for such an application. . . .
