Dependence of magnetic field sensitivity of a magnetoelectric laminate sensor pair on separation distance: Effect of mutual inductance
The effect of mutual inductance on the performance of a pair of Metglas/Pb(Zr,Ti)O-3 laminate magnetoelectric (ME) sensors has been studied. The effective value of the ME coefficient (alpha(ME)) for the laminates was reduced when the distance between was < 40 mm. Separating the two laminates by distances of > 40 mm, the effect of mutual inductance was small. The laminates exhibited the maximum values of alpha(ME). The ME sensor unit with two laminates connected in parallel had higher magnetic field sensitivities. 2012 American Institute of Physics. [doi:10.1063/1.3684986]
