In this work we describe a new fabrication method for magnetostrictive-piezoelectric sensors that improve several characteristics. The mechanical coupling between the ferromagnetic and the piezoelectric has been optimised by means of a mixed method: electrolytic deposition of a copper layer, playing the role of polished interface, and sputtering deposition of a highly magnetostrictive material on the interface. This method allows to remove the viscous fluid, improving the sensitivity, time stability and opening the possibility to industrial fabrication. The fabrication method opens also the possibility of miniaturisation or even integration of the sensor.
