Symposium EL13-Multiferroics and Magnetoelectrics

This symposium is focused on the fast-growing field of multiferroics and magnetoelectrics in which two or more ferroic (ferroelectric, ferro/anti-ferro magnetic, ferroelastic, etc.) orders coexist. The cross coupling between the magnetic and electric orders, i.e. magnetoelectric coupling, enables voltage control of spin degrees of freedom and vice verses that is crucial for the applications of ultra-low-power spintronics and magnetic sensors. On the other hand, these materials with interplay among spin, charge, orbit, and lattice degrees of freedom offer a remarkable platform for fundamental studies in materials science and condensed matter physics. Our symposium will highlight the most recent progress of this field including the theory of multiferroic materials, magnetic sensors and antennas, voltage-controlled magnetic anisotropy, magnetic memories, magnonics, magnetoelectric heterostructures and nanostructures, and imaging techniques of multiferroics and magnetoelectrics domains. This interdisciplinary symposium will bring together a diverse host of experts across academia, national laboratories and industry to discuss the recent development in theory, synthesis, characterizations, devices as well as the opportunities and challenges in the on-chip integration of multiferroic and magnetoelectric materials. The symposium aims to promote communications and discussions among material scientists, physicists, and electrical engineers for accelerating the development of multiferroic materials for information processing, storage, wireless communication and magnetic sensing applications.

Topics will include:

  • Theory and simulation of magnetoelectric materials
  • Magnetoelectric sensors, antennas, and energy harvesters
  • Voltage-controlled magnetic anisotropy
