Abstract: The critical behavior of a multilayered system of alternating ferroelectric and ferromagnetic thin films on a substrate of finite thickness is studied. A thermodynamic approach via the Ginzburg–Landau formulation is followed. Our interest is in the magnetoelectric effects exhibited in the critical behavior of the multilayer system, caused by the interlayer elastic interaction. The system is characterized by two bifurcation points. The system exhibits the strongest magnetoelectric effect near the second bifurcation.
