Multiferroics and applications

Multiferroics possess more than one form of order parameter, such as magnetization or electric polarization. The most commonly studied class of these materials are magnetoelectric multiferroics, where magnetization can be affected by electric field, and vice versa. This functionality has motivated fundamental and applied research. In this Focus issue, we highlight advances in magnetoelectric materials, consider the prospects of using topological structures for devices, and discuss the route to market for these materials.
