Advanced Piezoelectric Materials: Science and Technology by Kenji Uchino

By Kenji Uchino

Piezoelectric fabrics produce electrical fees on their surfaces due to employing mechanical tension. they're utilized in the fabrication of a growing to be variety of units similar to transducers (used, for instance, in ultrasound scanning), actuators (deployed in such parts as vibration suppression in optical and microelectronic engineering), strain sensor units (such as gyroscopes) and more and more as a fashion of manufacturing power. Their versatility has resulted in a wealth of analysis to expand the variety of piezoelectric fabrics and their power makes use of. complicated piezoelectric fabrics: technological know-how and know-how offers a finished overview of those new fabrics, their houses, equipment of manufacture and applications.

After an introductory review of the improvement of piezoelectric fabrics, half one reports a few of the kinds of piezoelectric fabric, starting from lead zirconate titanate (PZT) piezo-ceramics, relaxor ferroelectric ceramics, lead-free piezo-ceramics, quartz-based piezoelectric fabrics, using lithium niobate and lithium in piezoelectrics, unmarried crystal piezoelectric fabrics, electroactive polymers (EAP) and piezoelectric composite fabrics. half discusses the way to layout and fabricate piezo-materials with chapters on piezo-ceramics, unmarried crystal coaching options, skinny movie applied sciences, aerosol suggestions and production applied sciences for piezoelectric transducers. the ultimate a part of the e-book seems at functions comparable to high-power piezoelectric fabrics and actuators in addition to the functionality of piezoelectric fabrics below stress.

With its exotic editor and foreign workforce of professional participants complex piezoelectric fabrics: technological know-how and know-how is a customary reference for all these gaining knowledge of piezoelectric fabrics and utilizing them to increase new units in such parts as microelectronics, optical, sound, structural and biomedical engineering.

  • Provides a entire assessment of the hot fabrics, their houses and strategies of manufacture and application
  • Explores the improvement of piezoelectric fabrics from the historic history to the current status
  • Features an summary of producing equipment for piezoelectric ceramic fabrics together with layout considerations
