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.
