Paper Abstract

Based on the group theoretical analysis of the nonlinear electric susceptibility second harmonic response in different magnetic states of multiferroic bismuth ferrite is considered. It is shown that nonlinear magneto-optic effect can serve as an effective tool for spin cycloid structure detection in bulk material and probing homogenous antiferromagnetic state in thin films of bismuth ferrite. The study of antiferromagnetic state that determines magnetoelectric properties of the material is important in the context of practical applications in microelectronic and magnetic storage.
