Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Multiferroic materials, which have two or more ferroic orders, such as ferroelectricity, ferromagnetism, and ferroelasticity, have gained increasing levels of interest in the world of novel multifunctional materials due to the interaction between spin and charge. Because of the highly desired strong coupling between ferroelectricity and ferromagnetism, magnetoelectric materials have received strong research interest. The magnetoelectric (ME) effect is the coupling between polarization (P) and magnetization (M). The influences of the magnetoelectric effect on multiferroics are expected to have a significant impact on the production of advanced electromagnetic devices in the future.

With the development of nanoscience, magnetoelectric materials based on metals, oxides, semiconductors, polymers, and their combinations have attracted more research attention because of their versatility and excellent properties, which can improve their performances in various applications. Developing novel magnetoelectric materials and exploring their applicability has become the focus of a wider range of research fields, including the development of materials, sensors, and actuators, and biomedical applications. Although the research community has made positive progress in these areas, it is still necessary to discuss the main problems that should be solved for practical applications, such as performance improvement, in-depth understanding of the physical and chemical properties of the materials, processability, equipment integration, and reliability. It seems worth noting that open questions, problems, and challenges continue to emerge, providing a source of future research ideas and applications. At present, much work has been devoted to the theoretical and experimental research of magnetoelectric materials and different devices based on them. In terms of the theory and application of the magnetoelectric effect, it is very meaningful to propose a collection of best works.

In this Special Issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore magnetoelectric materials at different length scales. This Special Issue will discuss the main directions of magnetoelectric materials development in order to generalize and provide recommendations for future research focusing on design, synthesis, characterization, theoretical description, recent developments in single-phase and composite form, and their applications in novel device architectures.

Using first-principle spin-density functional computations, the structural, magnetic, and electronic properties of the Cr- and V-doped diluted magnetic semiconductors Ca1-xCrxS and Ca1-xVxSe at x = 0.25 in the B1 (NaCl) phase are explored. Elastic constants and structural properties (lattice constants, bulk modulus, and its pressure derivative) were calculated and used to establish structure stability. Plots of the TDOS and PDOS of transition metal atom-doped CaZ at x = 0.25 and pure CaZ (Z = S, Se) are presented. Cr-doped CaZ (Z = S, Se) shows half-metallic character at x = 0.25 and is stable in ferromagnetic state, while that of V-doped CaZ compounds shows semiconductor behavior and is stable in antiferromagnetic state. Dispersion of phonons was also evaluated to check the global minima of energy in pure CaZ compounds. Curie temperature, magnetic moments, and exchange constants were also calculated for all doped systems. The current results are in excellent agreement with earlier research. Our current findings imply that CaZ doped with Cr/V (Z = S, Se) would make a promising option for spintronic applications. Full article
