Title: Spin-driven multiferroics in BaYFeO{sub 4}

Abstract

We report on the spin-driven multiferroic property and magnetoelectric effect in the lately synthesized compound BaYFeO{sub 4}. Due to its peculiar crystal structure, the system exhibits complex magnetic phases with multiple transitions. The dielectric and pyroelectric measurements evidence a spin-driven multiferroic state raised by the cycloidal spin structure below T{sub 1} = 36 K. Strong magnetoelectric effect has also been observed in the multiferroic state. The origin of noncollinear cycloidal spin structure in BaYFeO{sub 4} is believed to arise from the interactions between low-dimensional magnetic columns.
