A 2-2 type multiferroic composite device encompassing three CoFe2O4 (CFO) layers confined between four Pb0.99[Zr0.45Ti0.47(Ni1/3Sb2/3)0.08]O3 (PZT) layers was fabricated by tape casting. X-ray diffraction data showed good chemical compatibility between the two phases, whereas Scanning Electron Microscopy imaging also revealed an intimate contact between CFO and PZT layers. Under an applied electric field of 65 kV/cm, this multilayer device shows a saturated polarisation of 7.5 μC/cm2 and a strain of 0.12%, whereas under a magnetic field of 10 kOe it exhibits a typical ferromagnetic response and a magnetic moment of 33 emu/g. This device can be electrically poled, after which it exhibits magnetoelectric coupling.
