We report on a giant tunable enhanced resonant magnetoelectric (ME) coupling in multiferroic magnetostrictive/piezoelectric composite bimorph structures. The approach uses a magnetic/electric field assisted stress-reconfigurable resonance to produce frequency tuning of up to 100%. The studies were performed by laser Doppler spectroscopy. We also show that this principle of a continuously tuned resonance might be used to improve sensitivity for ME magnetic sensors.
