We report theoretically and experimentally a dc magnetoelectric sensor consisting of a thickness-polarized 0.7Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3–0.3PbTiO3 (PMN-PT) piezoelectric single-crystal plate arranged along the longitudinal direction and sandwiched between a pair of electrically connected aluminum strips. The operation of the sensor is based on the direct coupling of the Lorentz force effect in the aluminum strips in response to an applied dc magnetic field under a reference ac electric current with the transverse piezoelectric effect in the PMN-PT single-crystal plate. The sensor shows a good linear ac electric voltage response to broad ranges of applied dc magnetic field of 0–180 mT and reference ac electric current of 1–100 mA, giving a high and linear current-controlled dc magnetic field sensitivity of 0.23 V/T/A. It also provides the direction information of the applied dc magnetic field.
