From the measurement of dielectric, ferroelectric, and magnetic properties, we observe simultaneous ferroelectric and magnetic transitions around similar to 600K in orthorhombic LuFeO3. We also observe suppression of the remanent polarization by similar to 95% under a magnetic field of similar to 15 kOe at room temperature. The extent of suppression of the polarization under magnetic field increases monotonically with the field. These results show that even the orthorhombic LuFeO3 is a room temperature multiferroic of type-II variety exhibiting quite a strong coupling between magnetization and polarization.
