New work just publsihed in APL-Materials shows that iron doped ferroelectric barium titanate exhibits multiferroic behaviour. New techniques developed under the European Metrology project ‘ADVENT’ by Electrosciences Ltd and the XMaS beamline at the ESRF (Synchrotron beamline in Grenoble, France) have shed new light on these materials.
