Magnetoelectric multiferroics, i.e. materials simultaneously hosting ferroelectric and magnetic order, attract enormous interest due to their potential in IT applications. The magnetoelectric coupling present in these materials appears in the optical regime as the difference of absorption coefficients of counter-propagating light beams, which effect is termed as directional dichroism. This exotic phenomenon has been reported for spin excitations in multiferroic melilite single crystals and proposed as a new principle of directional light switches operating in the GHz-THz region. Applications seem to be limited to low temperatures where electric and magnetic order coexist. However, recent studies on melilites revealed that an external magnetic field can recover the electric polarization via the para-magnetoelectric effect far above the material’s ordering temperature. Based on these static results we found strong directional dichroism in the paramagnetic phase of Sr2CoSi2O7. The strength of the effect grows with the magnetic field, in accordance with the magnetoelectric sum rule.
