Multiferroic BiFeO3 ceramics were synthesized by high temperature magnetic annealing using nanosized precursor powders prepared through microwave combustion. Simultaneously enhanced magnetization and electric polarization were observed at room temperature in the sample annealed under an external magnetic field of 10 T. These enhanced properties might be originated from a spin structure severely modulated or the low temperature magnetic phase driven up to room temperature and above by the large external annealing magnetic fields. These results demonstrate that the strong magnetic annealing method is an alternative way to synthesize high performance BiFeO3 materials.
