Magnetoelectric and multiferroic media: rich physics behind, and promise for multipurpose applications

This lecture introduces students to the concept of magnetoelectricity as opposed to conventional electromagnetism: the basic physical effects underlying the mutual conversion of electricity and magnetism, as well as the promising multipurpose application from ultra-low energy electronics to neuromodulation.
