Title: Manipulating multiple order parameters via oxygen vacancies: The case of E u 0.5 B a 0.5 Ti O 3 - δ

Abstract

Controlling functionalities, such as magnetism or ferroelectricity, by means of oxygen vacancies ($${V}_{\mathrm{O}}$$) is a key issue for the future development of transition-metal oxides. Progress in this field is currently addressed through $${V}_{\mathrm{O}}$$ variations and their impact on mainly one order parameter. In this paper, we reveal a mechanism for tuning both magnetism and ferroelectricity simultaneously by using $${V}_{\mathrm{O}}$$. Combining experimental and density-functional theory studies of $$\mathrm{E}{\mathrm{u}}_{0.5}\mathrm{B}{\mathrm{a}}_{0.5}\mathrm{Ti}{\mathrm{O}}_{3{-}{\delta}}$$, we demonstrate that oxygen vacancies create $$\mathrm{T}{\mathrm{i}}^{3+}3{d}^{1}$$ defect states, mediating the ferromagnetic coupling between the localized Eu $$4{f}^{7}$$ spins, and increase an off-center displacement of Ti ions, enhancing the ferroelectric Curie temperature. Finally, the dual function of Ti sites also promises a magnetoelectric coupling in the $$\mathrm{E}{\mathrm{u}}_{0.5}\mathrm{B}{\mathrm{a}}_{0.5}\mathrm{Ti}{\mathrm{O}}_{3{-}{\delta}}$$.
