Title: Voltage Control of Two-Magnon Scattering and Induced Anomalous Magnetoelectric Coupling in Ni–Zn Ferrite

Abstract

Controlling spin dynamics through modulation of spin interactions in a fast, compact, and energy-efficient way is compelling for its abundant physical phenomena and great application potential in next-generation voltage controllable spintronic devices. In this work, we report electric field manipulation of spin dynamics-the two-magnon scattering (TMS) effect in Ni0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4 (NZFO)/Pb(Mg2/3Nb1/3)-PbTiO3 (PMN-PT) multiferroic heterostructures, which breaks the bottleneck of magnetostatic interaction-based magnetoelectric (ME) coupling in multiferroics. An alternative approach allowing spin-wave damping to be controlled by external electric field accompanied by a significant enhancement of the ME effect has been demonstrated. A two-way modulation of the TMS effect with a large magnetic anisotropy change up to 688 Oe has been obtained, referring to a 24 times ME effect enhancement at the TMS critical angle at room temperature. Furthermore, the anisotropic spin-freezing behaviors of NZFO were first determined via identifying the spatial magnetic anisotropy fluctuations. Finally, a large spin-freezing temperature change of 160 K induced by the external electric field was precisely determined by electron spin resonance.
