The electric perturbation effect to the charge-orbital ordering state has been investigated for Bi1-xSrxMnO3 (x ∼ 0.5). The alignment and rotation of the charge-orbital stripes have been observed in the resistance and the polarizing microscope images at room temperature. These results indicate the possibility of electrical control of the anisotropic properties in the charge-orbital ordering state through the orbital degree of freedom.
