Title: Strong magnetoelectric and spin phonon coupling in SmFeO{sub 3}/PMN-PT composite

Abstract

We have investigated spin phonon coupling in the strain coupled magnetoelectric SmFeO{sub 3}/0.65Pb(Mg{sub 1/3}Nb{sub 2/3})O{sub 3}–0.35PbTiO{sub 3} (PMN-PT) composite in the temperature range of 300–650 K by Raman spectroscopy and magnetic measurements. The SmFeO{sub 3}/PMN-PT composite shows sharp rise in magnetic moment across ferroelectric transition temperature (T{sub c}) of PMN-PT. Around this transition temperature (T{sub c} of PMN-PT), the temperature evolution of Raman spectra of the composite also shows anomalies in the phonon frequencies and line width corresponding to the SmFeO{sub 3} phase which indicate structural modifications in the SmFeO{sub 3} phase around T{sub c} of PMN-PT. The observed structural, magnetic, and phonon anomalies of SmFeO{sub 3} around T{sub c} of PMN-PT in SmFeO{sub 3}/PMN-PT are attributed to spin-phonon coupling providing evidence of strong strain mediated magnetoelectric effects.
