Giant magnetoelectric (ME) voltage and charge coefficients have been found in long-type composites of high-permeability magnetostrictive FeBSiC alloy ribbons laminated together with piezoelectric Pb(Zn-1/3,Nb-2/3)O-3-7%PbTiO3 single crystal fibers. The maximum ME voltage and charge coefficients at low frequencies were 10.5 V/cm Oe and 1 nC/Oe under a notably low dc magnetic bias of 2 Oe; at resonance, these coefficients were dramatically increased to 400 V/cm Oe and 42 nC/Oe, respectively. These values are much higher, and the required dc magnetic bias much lower, than those of previously reported Terfenol-D based ME laminates. (C) 2007 American Institute of Physics.
