Researchers provided a significant advancement in achieving near-theoretical multiferroic magnetoelectric (ME) coupling by exploiting the critical microstructural and magnetomechanical parameters in film-based ME composites. The PZT (Pb(Zr,Ti)O3)/Metglas (FeBSi) composite system was chosen for its promising ME performance owing to the large piezoelectric constant of PZT and high piezomagnetic coefficient of Metglas. The PZT/Metglas bilayered composites were synthesized by employing an emerging additive manufacturing approach, combining room temperature deposition and selective annealing.
