Highly dense magnetoelectric composite films with 10 μm-thick of high piezoelectric voltage coefficient material, 0.9Pb(Zr 57Ti 43)O 3-0.1Pb(Mn 1/3Nb 2/3)O 3 (PZT-PMnN) and magnetostrictive material, Ni 0.8Zn 0.2Fe 2O 4 (NZF), were fabricated on a platinized Si substrate using aerosol deposition (AD). With increasing magnetic NZF content, dielectric and ferroelectric properties were gradually decreased while magnetizations were improved. The 20% NZF added composite thick film were found to exhibit the maximum ME coefficient. This optimal NZF content is the same as that of bulk ME composite materials. It is noticeable that AD can control the content ratio of ME composite films by controlling the powder composition. The fabricated ME composite films have high ME voltage coefficient coupling because of high density without severe inter-reactions of two phases.
