We, as a group, learn, explore, and make discoveries together. Our current research interests are low dimensional complex oxides and their interface with organic semiconductors.
On the structural origin of single ion magnetic anisotropy in LuFeO3
Hexagonal rare earth ferrites simultaneously exhibit spontaneous ferroelectricity and weak ferromagnetisim. The weak ferromagnetism relies on the specific spin anisotropy. We show that it is the subtle structural distorion related to the Fe displacement that generates this anisotropy. See more details: Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, 28, 156001 (2016).
