Experimental data on a piezofiber/Metglas bilayer composite subjected to both a dc electric voltage bias and a dc magnetic field bias while exciting it with an ac electric driving voltage are presented. As reported in previous studies, a dc magnetic field bias exists to maximize the converse magnetoelectric coefficient. Experimental data show that the optimum dc magnetic field bias is a function of applied dc electric voltage. Furthermore, it is revealed that an optimum dc electric voltage bias exists to further maximize the converse magnetoelectric coefficient.
