Using chemical solution spin-coating we grew Pb(Zr0.52Ti 0.48)O3 films of different thicknesses on highly dense CoFe2O4 ceramics. X-ray diffraction revealed no other phases except Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O3 and CoFe 2O4. In many of these samples we observed typical ferroelectric hysteresis loops, butterfly-shaped piezoelectric strains, and the magnetic-field-dependent magnetostriction. These behaviors caused appreciable magnetoelectric responses based on magnetic-mechanical-electric coupling. Our results indicated that the thickness of the Pb(Zr0.52Ti 0.48)O3 film was important in obtaining strong magnetoelectric coupling.
