Magnetoelectric (ME) composites are two-phase composites consisting of piezoelectric and piezomagnetic materials as the participating constituents. These magnetoelectric composites when placed under external magnetic field, show electrical polarization (magnetoelectric output). The ME coupling is mediated by mechanical stress. In the present study, we have synthesized Ni/PZT/Ni and Fe/PZT/Fe layered composites for studying their ME output by dynamic magnetoelectric set up in which both d.c. and a.c. magnetic fields can be varied. The ME output obtained in these composites are higher than those obtained in 40% Ni0.97Co0.03Mn0.01 Fe1.9O4 + 60% BaTi1.02O3.04. The results with varying d.c. and a.c. magnetic fields are presented.
