Abstract

The bandwidth of magnetoelectric (ME) resonance for a combined structure where several Terfenol-D/epoxy- Pb (Zr,Ti) O3 bilayers are connected in parallel and series was measured. A relationship between the bilayer length and resonance frequency was used to design the combined structure, in which the bilayered components of different lengths were connected in the parallel and series forms, respectively. The measured giant ME effect of the combined structure showed a much wider frequency response to external field than a single bilayered structure, and the ME effect far from the resonance ranges was enhanced significantly too. A qualitative analysis based on the equivalent circuit concept was presented to explain these effects.
