In science:

Recent years have seen an enormous increase in research activity in the field of multiferroic materials and magneto-electric effects.
First Principles Studies of Multiferroic Materials
Research on multiferroics (or magnetic ferroelectrics) is also intimately interwoven with research on the magneto-electric effect, which is the property that in certain materials a magnetic field induces an electric polarization and, conversely, an electric field induces a magnetization.
First Principles Studies of Multiferroic Materials
The prediction of FeTiO3 as a possible candidate for electric field switchable weak ferromagnetism, is one example for attempts to design new materials with novel or more favorable magneto-electric properties based on first principles electronic structure calculations.
First Principles Studies of Multiferroic Materials
Another example is the design of a material that allows for magneto-electric phase control .
First Principles Studies of Multiferroic Materials
Nevertheless, many open questions still remain, in particular how to achieve large polarization, large magnetization, and strong magneto-electric coupling above room temperature, or what mechanisms for coupling between magnetic and ferroelectric properties do exist in these materials.
First Principles Studies of Multiferroic Materials
Furthermore, new physical phenomena emerge at O(2 ), like the magneto-electric coupling in insulators which received new attention recently, also due to the discovery of topological insulators51,52 .
Effective Quantum Theories for Transport in Inhomogeneous Systems with Non-trivial Band Structure
The magneto-electrostatic trap is composed by a quadrupole magnetic field superposed to a quadrupole electric field.
Formation and interactions of cold and ultracold molecules: new challenges for interdisciplinary physics
To introduce a basic setup combining magnetic and electric fields, we now consider a single magneto-electric barrier produced by superimposing a scalar potential V of the same step-like shape on the magnetic structure with a δ -like magnetic field [i.e., a step-wise vector potential A(x) = A1 θ(−x)+ A2 θ(x)].
Electronic properties of mesoscopic graphene structures: charge confinement and control of spin and charge transport
For potential applications, the important feature of a single magneto-electric barrier is that the transport (electric current) across or along this structure can be controlled by manipulating only the electric potentials V1 and V2 .
Electronic properties of mesoscopic graphene structures: charge confinement and control of spin and charge transport
In insulators that are adiabatically connected to free fermions, the magneto electric polarizability θ , is fixed to be multiples of π to preserve time reversal symmetry.
Beyond Band Insulators: Topology of Semi-metals and Interacting Phases
Indeed, if the zero-frequency magnetic and electric susceptibilities of a material are comparable while its high frequency magnetic response is negligible, Kramers-Kroning relations suggest that the magneto-dipole adsorption should dominate at low frequencies.
Microwave Emission by Dust: Mechanisms, Properties and Prospects for ISM Studies
If the zero frequency magnetic and electric susceptibilities of a material are comparable while the high frequency magnetic response is negligible, the Kramers-Kronig relations require that the magneto-dipole adsorption should dominate at low frequencies (see DL99).
Microwave Emission from Galactic Dust Grains
In case of the electo-dipole emission, the longer grain axis defines the vector of the electric field, while it defines the vector of the magnetic field in case of magneto-dipole emission.
