Abstract

The relationship between the magnetocapacitance effect and rotation direction of electric polarization (P) in a canted magnetic field has been investigated for multiferroic RMnO3 (R = Tb1-xDy x and Eu0.6Y0.4). We observed a clear correlation between the enhancement of the magnetocapacitance effect and the rotation direction of P in a P-flop transition. These results indicate that the mobility and the stability of the 90° domain wall in a P-flop transition are dominated by its thickness.
