ABSTRACT
Polycrystalline CuCr1-xNixO2 is synthesized and its multiferrocity is characterized in order to enhance the ferromagnetism and ferroelectricity of CuCrO2-based multiferroics. At the optimized doping level x=0.05, we observe not only an enhancement of one order of magnitude in magnetization but also a remarkable increasing of polarization up to ∼50 μC/m2 from ∼35 μC/m2 of polycrystalline CuCrO2. It is argued that the Ni-doping may modulate the antiferromagnetic interactions between Cr3+ ions and probably induce the conical-like spin component responsible for the enhanced ferromagnetism.

    The critical state of a 1D granular superconductor (modeled as a chain of SQUIDs or, in other words, a 1D Josephson-junction array) is studied on the basis of a system of differential equations for the gauge-invariant phase difference. It is established that the critical state is self-organized....

    Using a scanning SQUID microscope we have magnetically imaged YBCO films grown upon Rolling-Assisted Biaxial Textured Substrates (RABiTS). The measurements clearly show a strong (about 3 Oe) and non-uniform spontaneous magnetization due to the Ni-based substrate. The YBCO film on a ferromagnetic...
