The effect of magnetostrictive layer thickness on the magnetoelectric (ME) response and field sensitivity of Pb(Zr,Ti)O3-metglas based sandwiched ME heterostructures has been studied. Such structures hold promise for sensor applications. The increase in metglas thickness results in a significant increase in the ME response and magnetic field sensitivity. The ME coefficient and field sensitivity increase by about 1.5–1.75 and 2.7 times, respectively, for a structure with 150 μm thick six metglas layers on both sides of the Pb(Zr,Ti)O3, in comparison to a 50 μm thick two layered structure.
