Using the results of x-ray and neutron diffraction experiments, we show that the ferroelectric polarization, in similar to 22 nm particles of BiFeO(3), exhibits a jump by similar to 30% around the magnetic transition point T(N) (similar to 635 K) and a suppression by similar to 7% under 5T magnetic field at room temperature (<< T(N)). These results confirm the presence of strong multiferroic coupling even in nanoscale BiFeO(3) and thus could prove to be quite useful for applications based on nanosized devices of BiFeO(3).
