Abstract

We have found large magnetoelectric (ME) effects in long-type laminate composites of Fe–20%Ga magnetostrictive alloys and piezoelectric Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3–PbTiO3 single crystals. At lower frequencies, the ME voltage coefficient of a laminate with longitudinally magnetized and longitudinally polarized (i.e., L-L mode) layers was 1.41 V/Oe (or1.01 V/cm Oe). Near the natural resonant frequency ( ∼ 91 kHz) of the laminate, the ME voltage coefficients were found to be dramatically increased to 50.7 V/Oe (36.2 V/cm Oe)for the L-L mode. In addition, the laminate can detect a minute magnetic field as low as ∼ 2×10−12 T at resonance frequency, and ∼ 1×10−10 T at lower frequencies.
