Chemical doping is an alternative to tailor the properties of complex oxides. A–site doping in hexagonal RMnO3 with Ca or Zr leads to a conductivity enhancement at the domain walls while preserving the characteristic topological ferroelectric state of the system. Stronger effects on the magnetism in this multiferroic family are expected by doping at the B–site. This is due to the direct perturbation of the magnetic sublattices formed by Mn3+ moments. We investigate Al-doping (0-25%) at the B–site in h-YMnO3. We use a combination of second-harmonic generation (SHG) and piezoresponse force microscopy to disclose the effects on antiferromagnetic and ferroelectric domain formation. The later ones, for example, reveal a size decrease with increasing degree of doping. Furthermore, a combination of SHG and X-ray diffraction (XRD) unveils a decreasing trend for magnetic/electric ordering temperatures as a function of doping. This is due to the chemical pressure induced by the distinct ionic sizes of Al and Mn and the progressive decomposition of the long-range order. By tracing the changes in the inherent properties of these ferroic systems, we aim to broaden the understanding for new routes in the manipulation of this important class of multiferroics.
