Multiferroic materials, possessing both ferroelectric and ferromagnetic orders in the same phase, are currently one of the spots of high interest in solid-state investigations. We use first-principles calculations to demonstrate a possible way to employ multiferroic materials in nanodevices where the magnetization direction is controlled with an external electric field; in contrast to this application which should eventually take place at room temperature, we show that multiferroics can also be used in experiments conducted at liquid helium temperature, searching for the permanent electric dipole moment of electron.
