Title: Magnetostriction-polarization coupling in multiferroic Mn 2MnWO 6

Double corundum-related polar magnets are promising materials for multiferroic and magnetoelectric applications in spintronics. However, their design and synthesis is a challenge, and magnetoelectric coupling has only been observed in Ni 3TeO 6 among the known double corundum compounds to date. Here in this paper we address the high-pressure synthesis of a new polar and antiferromagnetic corundum derivative Mn 2MnWO 6, which adopts the Ni 3TeO 6-type structure with low temperature first-order field-induced metamagnetic phase transitions (T N = 58 K) and high spontaneous polarization (~ 63.3 μC·cm -2). The magnetostriction-polarization coupling in Mn 2MnWO 6 is evidenced by second harmonic generation effect, and corroborated by magnetic-field-dependent pyroresponse behavior, which together with the magnetic-field-dependent polarization and dielectric measurements, qualitatively indicate magnetoelectric coupling. Finally, piezoresponse force microscopy imaging and spectroscopy studies on Mn 2MnWO 6 show switchable polarization, which motivates further exploration on magnetoelectric effect in single crystal/thin film specimens.
