A vector map of in-plane magnetization reveals complex magnetic domains with variable-strength local magnetization in an epitaxial ferromagnetic manganite film on a ferroelectric substrate of barium titanate at around 150 K. The data were collected at the Diamond Light Source using photoemission electron microscopy (PEEM) with x-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) contrast. The image is from organiser N. D. Mathur and co-workers.
In the last decade there has been an explosion of activity into materials and devices that interconvert magnetic and electrical signals. The magnetoelectric coupling required for this may arise in a single material or at the interface between two materials. Bulk samples, thin films and devices will be discussed.
Biographies of the organisers and speakers are available below and you can also download the programme. Recorded audio of the presentations are also available and the papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions A.
