"Through the combination of electronic conduction with the electric and magnetic properties already present in the multiferroic bismuth ferrite, our demonstration opens the door to merging magnetoelectrics and magnetoelectronics at room temperature," he added.
Recently, a new field has emerged, called spintronics or sometimes magnetoelectronics, which combine both the spin and charge of electrons to obtain devices with new functionality and increased performance.
