Exchange coupling between a magnetoelectric (111)-oriented Cr2O3 single crystal and a CoPt multilayer with perpendicular anisotropy exhibits an exchange bias field proportional to the applied axial electric field. Extrapolation from bulk to thin film magnetoelectric pinning system suggests promising spintronic applications due to coupling between the electric field-controlled magnetization and the magnetization of a neighbor ferromagnetic layer. Pure voltage control of magnetic configurations of tunneling magnetoresistance spin valves is an attractive alternative to current-induced magnetization switching. ©2005 American Institute of Physics
