Mn2+2Fe2+W6+O6, a new polar magnetic phase, adopts the corundum-derived Ni3TeO6-type structure with large spontaneous polarization (PS) of 67.8 μC cm-2, complex antiferromagnetic order below ≈75 K, and field-induced first-order transition to a ferrimagnetic phase below ≈30 K. First-principles calculations predict a ferrimagnetic (udu) ground state, optimal switching path along the c-axis, and transition to a lower energy udu-udd magnetic double cell.
