The deterministic rotation of magnetization by electric fields is a challenging issue for future low-power spintronics. In a Co/0.7Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-0.3PbTiO3 multiferroic heterostructure, piezostrain-mediated, macroscopically maneuverable, and non-volatile magnetization reversal without an applied magnetic field is demonstrated. This, combined with the(More)
Voltage controlled 180° magnetization reversal has been achieved in BiFeO3-based multiferroic heterostructures, which is promising for the future development of low-power spintronic devices. However, all existing reports involve the use of an in-plane voltage that is unfavorable for practical device applications. Here, we investigate, using phase-field(More)
Voltage-driven 180° magnetization switching provides a low-power alternative to current-driven magnetization switching widely used in spintronic devices. Here we computationally demonstrate a promising route to achieve voltage-driven in-plane 180° magnetization switching in a strain-mediated multiferroic heterostructure (e.g., a heterostructure consisting(More)
