I just read Ising's interesting introduction of Multiferrotics several days ago. Today there is a coloquium about it by professor Jeroen van den Brink of University of Leiden. So I post the introduction of his speech here for those who are interested.

Title : Novel routes to Multiferroic
Speaker : Jeroen van den Brink, Universiteit Leiden

Abstract : As this new century unfolds the study of materials possessing coupled magnetic and ferroelectric order - multiferroics - is revitalized, after pioneering work in the 1950s-1960s [1,2]. New classes of materials were found to be ferroelectric and exhibiting an exceptionally strong sensitivity to applied magnetic fields. These multiferroics show many dramatic effects, such as a giant magneto-capacitance, magnetically induced electric polarization flops and a rotation of electric polarization in a periodically varying magnetic field [3-5]. These effects are not only interesting from a fundamental point of view but can also be directly relevant for sensor, transducer and memory device applications [2]. This motivated Science Magazine a few months ago to identify the field of multiferroics as an Area to Watch [6]. In the colloquium I will discuss new theoretical possibilities to obtain multiferroic couplings in systems that exhibit combinations of charge and spin order [6-10].
