Spintronics is a novel and emerging area of research in which both the intrinsic spin of the electron and its associated magnetic moment are exploited in addition to its charge. Spintronic based devices are being developed enormously and the researches in this area are attaining tremendous pace recently. In this particular article, details of multiferroic properties, magneto electric coupling etc. are discussed. A general introduction to spintronics and associated physics is discussed. Development and progress in spintronics based devices are elaborated. Final sessions are dedicated for the description of recent patents on spintronics devices in which multiferroic material is a constituent.

Keywords: Coupling, magneto electrics, multiferroics, spintronics.
