Ultrafast and continuous-wave spectroscopy of multiferroic oxide thin films
Thin film multiferroic oxides with co-existing ferroelectric and ferromagnetic ordering have attracted much interest in recent years, partly as a result of the enhancements achieved through the adoption of strained thin film geometries. This thesis presents work on two such thin film oxides; lanthanide substituted BiFeO3 and Fe substituted PbTiO3.
Coherent magnons and acoustic phonons were impulsively excited and probed in thin films of the room temperature mul...Expand abstract
