    Manipulation of the remanent (zero external magnetic field) magnetization state of a single ferromagnetic film is shown to control the room-temperature conductance of an organic semiconductor thin film deposited on top. For the organic semiconductor Alq3, the magnetic fringe fields from a multidomain remanent magnetization state of the film enhance the device conductance by several percent relative to its value for the magnetically saturated ferromagnetic film. The effect of fringe fields is insensitive to ferromagnetic film's thickness (which varies the fringe field magnitude proportionately) but sensitive to the magnetic domain's correlation length.
