Local structures, such as structural defects, interfaces, and domain walls have the potential to exhibit different physical properties than the bulk. The occurrence of magnetic and electric orders in a confined area may be of particular interest for technological applications, for example, to electrically control the magnetization in memory devices. However, probing local multiferroic structures is challenging caused by a lack of experimental techniques. In this study, we demonstrate a ribbon-shaped, spatially confined multiferroic phase in a non-multiferroic environment in MnWO4. We use optical second harmonic generation imaging to show that a multiferroic phase can be generated by local strain within a non-multiferroic bulk structure. Furthermore, we reveal within the confined multiferroic regions domains with different electric polarization directions and demonstrate deterministic writing of a multiferroic state by the application of strain.
