Title: Evidence of spin phonon coupling in magnetoelectric NiFe{sub 2}O{sub 4}/PMN-PT composite

Abstract

The coupling of phonon with spin in strain coupled magnetoelectric NiFe{sub 2}O{sub 4} (NFO)/0.65Pb(Mg{sub 1/3}Nb{sub 2/3})O{sub 3}–0.35PbTiO{sub 3} (PMN-PT) composite was investigated by temperature-dependent Raman spectroscopy and magnetic measurements in the range 30–350 °C. Pure NFO shows usual ferromagnetic behaviour in this temperature range while NFO/PMN-PT composite show dramatic change in magnetic moment across ferroelectric transition temperature (T{sub c} ∼ 180 °C) of PMN-PT. The temperature evolution of the Raman spectra for the composite shows significant phonon anomalies in T-site (Fe-O) and O-site (Ni/Fe-O) phonon modes at ferroelectric transition temperature is attributed to spin phonon coupling in NFO/PMN-PT composite. The strain mediated magnetoelectric coupling mechanism in this composite is apparent from the observed spin phonon interaction.
