We demonstrate electrical control of the ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) in multiferroic nanostructures. A series of heteroepitaxial BiFeO3–NiFe2O4 nanocomposites of varying thickness are characterized using a microwave probe with magnetic and electric sensitivity. We apply an electric field to a sample and observe voltage-driven shifts in the FMR frequency, reflecting a change in magnetic anisotropy. The voltage dependence of the FMR linewidths is even more pronounced, indicating the electric polarization can induce relatively large magnetic nonuniformity in the material. These characteristics may lead to a class of rf filters where both frequency and bandwidth are electrically tunable.

    We report that asymmetric c-shaped holes show mode switching between single- and double-resonance frequencies in the terahertz region, when the polarization direction of the incident light is controlled. The number of resonant frequencies is attributed to fundamental shape modes such as circle-,...
