We have found that laminate composites consisting of longitudinally magnetized magnetostrictive Terfenol-D and longitudinally poled piezoelectric Pb(Zr,Ti)O[sub 3] layers have dramatically enhanced magnetoelectric effects when driven near resonance. The maximum induced magnetoelectric voltage at resonance was ∼10 Vp/Oe, which is ∼10[sup 2] times higher than previous reports at subresonant frequencies. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
