Multiferroic CoFe2O4-Pb(Zr,Ti)O3 lms were prepared on TiO2-terminated (001) Nb-doped SrTiO3 substrates by using pulsed laser deposition (PLD). The films were epitaxial and exhibited a large in-plane magnetic anisotropy and good ferroelectric properties. A decrease in the magnetization around the ferroelectric Curie temperature indicated magnetoelectric coupling between the magnetostrictive and the piezoelectric phases, which allows interconversion of energy stored in the electric and the magnetic fields and provides great potential for applications as next-generation multi-functional devices.
