The main objective is relaxation processes in ME composites. For layered ferrite–piezoelectric composite, the Maxwell-Wagner relaxation of ME susceptibility and ME voltage coefficient is found to have Debay character and to be normal for ME susceptibility and inverse for ME voltage coefficient. In ferrite–piezoelectric bulk composite, the Maxwell-Wagner relaxation of ME susceptibility and ME voltage coefficient is inverse for ME voltage coefficient and can be both normal and inverse for ME susceptibility.
