Creating ferromagnetic/ferroelectric heterostructures is a way for developing multifunctional materials which is called multiferroics. Exchange bias may be used to couple a normal ferromagnet to a ferroelectric antiferromagnet and thus create a multiferroic system with nonzero magnetization. In implementing this idea we developed a synthesis method for composite films of MnFe2O4 embedded in BiFeO3 . The method utilizes the Bi volatility to obtain the composite films via thermal annealing of multilayer composed of BiFeO3 and BiMnO3. SEM measurements showed that the cluster size varies depending on the film thickness. The composite films possess both ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties . Magnetoelectric coupling (MEC) was investigated by Ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) technique. Analysis of FMR data showed that resonance field can be controlled by GHz range electric fields.
