By Kenji Uchino

Piezoelectric fabrics produce electrical fees on their surfaces because of making use of mechanical tension. they're utilized in the fabrication of a becoming diversity of units reminiscent of 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 strength. Their versatility has ended in a wealth of study to develop the diversity of piezoelectric fabrics and their capability makes use of. complicated piezoelectric fabrics: technological know-how and expertise presents a entire assessment of those new fabrics, their homes, equipment of manufacture and applications.

After an introductory evaluation of the improvement of piezoelectric fabrics, half one reports a number of the varieties 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 best way to layout and fabricate piezo-materials with chapters on piezo-ceramics, unmarried crystal guidance strategies, skinny movie applied sciences, aerosol recommendations and production applied sciences for piezoelectric transducers. the ultimate a part of the ebook seems to be at purposes reminiscent of high-power piezoelectric fabrics and actuators in addition to the functionality of piezoelectric fabrics lower than stress.

With its unusual editor and overseas staff of professional participants complex piezoelectric fabrics: technology and know-how is a typical reference for all these gaining knowledge of piezoelectric fabrics and utilizing them to advance new units in such parts as microelectronics, optical, sound, structural and biomedical engineering.

  • Provides a entire evaluate of the hot fabrics, their homes and strategies of manufacture and application
  • Explores the advance of piezoelectric fabrics from the historic heritage to the current status
  • Features an summary of producing tools for piezoelectric ceramic fabrics together with layout considerations
