We study the propagation of surface spin waves in two wave guides coupled through the dipole-dipole interaction. Essential for the observations made here is the magneto-electric coupling between the spin waves and the effective ferroelectric polarization. This allows an external electric field to act on spin waves and to modify the band gaps of magnonic excitations in individual layers. By an on/off switching of the electric field and/or varying its strength or direction with respect to the… Expand
