The Magnetoelectric (ME) composites have attracted enormous attention for future devices and engineering applications. Different phases in ME thin films can be connected and designed at the atomic scale with higher precision, providing a deeper insight into the fundamental mechanisms of ME coupling. The magnetoelectric response in two-phase composite depends on piezoelectric, magnetostrictive layers and strain mediated coupling between them. Thus, individual layers with high piezomagnetic and piezoelectric coefficients and strong coupling interaction is the primary step towards achieving strong ME response. Incorporation of magnetoelectric structures in the MEMS devices can be vital for futuristic sensing device applications.
