Publication Details

Zhang, S., Li, F., Luo, J., Sahul, R. & Shrout, T. R. (2013). Relaxor-PbTiO3 single crystals for various applications. IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control, 60 (8), 1573-1579.


Piezoelectric materials lie at the heart of electromechanical devices. Applications include actuators, ultrasonic imaging, high intensity focused ultrasound, underwater ultrasound, nondestructive evaluation transducer, pressure sensors, and accelerometers, to name a few. In this work, the advantages and disadvantages of relaxor-PbTiO3-based single crystals are discussed, based on the requirements (figure of merit) of various applications, with emphasis on recent developments of the shear properties of single crystals as a function of temperature and applied fields. 1986-2012 IEEE.
