This paper describes the magnetoelectric (ME) coupling behavior of the nano bi-layer L-T (longitudinal-transverse) mode bar structure through the ME coefficient mathematical model that is developed in high frequency regime. Terfenol-D and Lead Zirconate Titanate (PZT) are used as ferromagnetic (FM) and ferroelectric (FE) layers, respectively. The ME coefficients are determined at different layer thickness ratios and products of the operating frequency (f) and structure length (l). It is found that the ME coefficient and optimal thickness ratio increases and decreases exponentially respectively, with fl. The minimum and maximum peak ME coefficients at fl values of 0.1 and 1,200 respectively, are around 1,756 and 5,617 mV/Oe·cm with the optimal thickness ratio of 0.43 and 0.19, respectively.
