Abstract: We report on specific features of the dielectric and magnetic properties as well as magnetoelectric coupling coefficients ME) of the La0.7Ba0.3MnO3 (L)-BaTiO3 (B) 2–2 type ceramic composite. The powder of L and B was synthesized by two different methods (solid state reaction and Pechini). Orthorhombic and tetragonal phases were observed for the separated phases L and B of the composite, respectively, for both synthesis methods. The characteristics of grain size and interfacial interdiffusion in the L–B–L composite obtained for different synthesis method were studied, showing that diffusion was a typically physical migration, which can be mainly controlled by the grain size. Anomalies in the observed dielectric behavior are attributed to the internal residual stresses and chemically inhomogeneous regions. The existence of a broad magnetic transition observed in the pure L phase and laminated L–B–L composite was also attributed to its small grain size. A comparison of the maximum transversal View the MathML source and longitudinal View the MathML source ME coupling coefficients, at room temperature, is also shown.
