We fabricate a surface acoustic wave (SAW) device on a multiferroic BiFeO3 crystal while SAW devices are usually fabricated on nonmagnetic piezoelectrics and commercially available as bandpass filters. By using the time-domain technique, we demonstrate the SAW excitation on BiFeO3. The amplitude and phase of the SAW signal are modulated by the external magnetic field reflecting the multiferroicity of BiFeO3. The magnetic controllability of the multiferroic SAW device seems useful for the further functionalization of the SAW device.
