Switching of magnetism with electric fields and magnetic control of electric polarization are challenging tasks for multiferroic and magneto-electric materials. For data processing applications various composite realizations appear most promising: We propose 2-2 nanocomposites based on magneto-electric (ME) chromia (111) films (Cr2O3), which allow electric switching of the magnetization of epitaxially grown ultrathin ferromagnetic Co/Pt/Co trilayers via inter-facial exchange bias. Random access memory (ME-RAM) and logic cell MEXOR have been approved. Regular composites of magnetostrictive cobalt ferrite (CoFe2O4) nanopillars are PLD-grown in a piezoelectric film of barium titanate (BaTiO3). In a transverse magnetic field, they exert a staggered shear stress-induced surface pola¬ri-za¬tion pattern in the BaTiO3 environment. Possible data storage applications will be discussed. Ceramic 0-3 composites of antiferromagnetic-ferroelectric Bi (Fe,Co)O3 nanoclusters embedded in K0.5Bi0.5TiO3 reveal giant linear magneto-electric response via bilinear piezo-magneto-electric coupling, M=αE with α»10-5 s/m. They are candidates for future electrically addressable nanodot mass memory devices. Recent Publications 1. Kleemann W (2009). Switching magnetism with electric fields. Physics 2: 105-6. 2.
