Keywords: Piezomagnetic Cubic Monocrystals | Galfenol and Terfenol-D | Ultrasonic Surface Zakharenko Waves

This theoretical work provides with results of characteristics calculation of the ultrasonic surface Zakharenko waves (USZWs) existing in piezomagnetic cubic monocrystals of class m3m that can be readily used for non-destructive testing. The piezomagnetic waves propagate in direction [101] corresponding to relatively easy magnetization for the following piezomagnetics: Galfenol, Terfenol-D, and CoFe2O4 with cubic structures. The phase velocities of the USZW-waves and the coefficient of magnetomechanical coupling (CMMC) K2 were calculated for the crystals. It was found that the coefficient K2 for piezomagnetics with Km2 > 1/3 and Km2 >> 1/3 is about 8% to 9%, where K2 = 2 (VUSZW,o – VUSZW,c)/VUSZW,o and Km2 = h2/(Cμ). Knowledge of piezomagnetic properties of cubic crystals makes possible the use of them in new products utilizing the phenomenon called the magnetoelectric effect. Also, this study is useful for possible application of cubic piezomagnetics in composite structures consisting of piezoelectric and (or) piezomagnetic materials and in the microwave technology. This broadens choice of possible piezomagnetic materials for utilization in various technical devices.
