Multiferroic behavior was directly verified in a laminated ferroelectric-ferromagnetic heterostructure consisting of a FeCoV thick film (70 μm) and lead zinc niobate-lead titanate (PZN-PT) single crystal. This unique heterostructure demonstrates a significant converse magnetoelectric (CME) effect corresponding to a CME coupling constant of 31 Oe/kV cm-1. It derives from the soft magnetic and magnetostrictive properties (λ=60 ppm) of FeCoV alloy and the superior electromechanical properties (d32=-2800 pC/N) of PZN-PT crystal. The electric field controlled magnetic hysteresis is discussed in terms of a stress-induced anisotropy field model. The theoretical calculation is within 7% of the measured induced field of 240 Oe.
