Multiferroic materials show simultaneous ferroelectric and magnetic ordering, exhibit unusual physical properties — and in turn promise new device applications — as a result of the coupling between their dual order parameters. Room-temperature multiferroics are a promising route to design magnetic/electric memories. Over the past decade, there has been a revival of interest in understanding the magnetoelectric coupling due to its possible applications to multifunctional ferroic devices. This is an important step towards controlling magnetization with electric fields, which may enable a new class of electrically controllable spintronic devices and provide a new basis for producing electrically controllable spin-polarized currents. In this paper we review the study of multiferroic materials and focus on the effects of different synthesis methods & doping on their magnetic properties.
