Title: Multiferroics: Making a point of control

Abstract

Here, the coexistence of spin order and disorder at a critical point in the phase diagram of multiferroic materials may be exploited to locally control magnetoelectric coupling — as is now shown for doped BiFeO 3 by means of scanning probe microscopy.
