  Ferroic materials, which show simultaneous ferroelectric and magnetic ordering, exhibit unusual physical properties and promise new device applications as a consequence of the coupling between their dual order parameters. The symposium is a review of recent progress in the growth, characterization and understanding of high-quality thin-film oxides, which allow tailoring of their properties through epitaxial strain, atomic-level engineering and interfacial coupling. This is a prerequisite for their incorporation of practical devices.
