The directions of the arrows in the ferroelectric domain image (FE) of Figure 2 in the above-mentioned article are incorrect and should be rotated by 90° so that they reflect the experimentally observed collinear alignment between the ferroelectric polarization of the BaTiO3 substrate and the strain-induced uniaxial magnetic easy axes of the CoFe film. We provide the corrected Figure 2 below. The arguments and conclusions of the original article are not affected.

Figure 2.

Magnetic hysteresis curve and polarization microscopy images of the ferroelectric domain structure (FE) and magnetic stripe pattern during several stages of the magnetization reversal process (R1, S1, R2, S2). The figure depicts experimental data for a magnetic field angle of θ = 10°. The hysteresis curve represents an average magnetic response from many a1 and a2 domains. The arrows in the images indicate the orientation of ferroelectric polarization (FE) and film magnetization in the remnant state (R1 and R2) and during abrupt magnetic switching (S1 and S2). The imaged areas are 30 × 40 μm.
