A novel composite of brass ring and PZT disk shows a high dc magnetic field (Hdc) response when using the product effect of the Lorentz force effect from a metal ring in a dc magnetic field applied with ac electrical current, and the piezoelectric effect of piezoelectric material. The output voltage between the two faces of PZT shows a good linear response to the dc magnetic field (<1 kOe) under different ac electrical current inputs (<300 mA). The magnetoelectric coefficient is about ∼ 33.2 mV/T∈A. Simultaneously, the magnitude of its magnetoelectric coefficient can be manually controlled by an applied electrical current. This composite has the potential for applications in magnetoelectric transducers and sensors that work without coils even for static magnetic fields.
