Phenomena in Crystals
3rd International Conference
September 16-20, 1996
Novgorod State University,
The conference will be held at the Novgorod State University.
Novgorod is one of the oldest Russian town, the cradle of Russian culture.
Organized by the Department of Physics Engineering of Novgorod State University in collaboration with State Committee Of Russian Federation On High Education and Russian Academy of Science.
The first and second International Conferences on Magnetoelectric Interaction Phenomena in Crystals was held in 1973 (Seattle, USA) and in 1993 (Ascona, Switzerland), accordingly.
The third conference, as well as was planned, will pass in Novgorod, Russia
The Registration Fee of $250 for a foreign participant and a little bit lower for participants from Former Soviet Union.

Fields and Special Topics
- Linear and higher order magnetoelectric, piezo-magnetoelectric and other magnetoelectrically related effects.
- Relation between symmetry and magnetoelectric properties (tensorial, crystallographic,relativistic).
- Phenomenological and microscopic theories (Landau theory of phase transitions, exchange effects).
- Frontier fields (toroidal moments, kinetoelectric and kinetomagnetic effects, problems of magnetoelectricity and related symmetry phenomena in quantum magnets, e.g. anyonic systems and chiral phases).
- Synthesis, structural and physical properties of magnetoelectric materials (single crystals,ceramics, composites): ordinary magnetoelectric and complex ones, such as ferromagnetic, ferrimagnetic or antiferromagnetic ferroelectrics, antiferro-electrics an Magnetoelectric effect in incommensurate crystals (modulated, intergrowth and quasicrystals).
- Magnetoelectrically monitored magnetic phases and phase transitions.
- Field induced effects.
- Static magnetic field induced polarization, electric field induced
magnetization, quasistatic, pulsed, dynamic and high frequency.
- Optical properties (crystal optics of magnetoelectric materials in transmission and reflection; magnetoelectrically generated non-linear optical effects).
- Domains and domain walls (switching, symmetry aspects, coupling with applied fields, stress,etc.).
- Elementary excitation in magnetoelectric materials.
- Inhomogeneity and defect induced magnetoelectric effects.
- Measuring techniques.
