Single phase or composite multiferroics show two or more ferroic (ferroelectric, ferro/anti-ferro magnetism, ferroelasticity …) orderings; while single phase or composite magnetoelectrics are the group of materials that exhibit strong magnetoelectric coupling. There has been significant progress in variety of multiferroic and magnetoelectric materials and devices that exhibit strong magnetoelectric coupling. More recently, new mechanisms are being explored for achieving larger magnetoelectric coupling in thin film heterostructures and nanoscale geometries. Of specific interests for this symposium are recent progress on multiferroic and magnetoelectric materials for devices such as discovery of new multiferroics, magnetoelectric sensors, memory devices, nanoscale single magnetic domain control, and dual electric and magnetic field tunable microwave signal processors, etc. This symposium will focus on recent developments in the physics, materials science and applications of multiferroic and magnetoelectric single phase and heterostructures. Abstracts are solicited on new multiferroic and magnetoelectric materials exhibiting strong magnetoelectric coupling, synthesis of single crystal complex oxide composites, nanoscale single domain multiferroic geometries, and layered multiferroic and magnetoelectric heterostructures, characterization techniques, and device applications including sensors, memory devices, transducers, and high frequency signal processing.
