Bilayer piezoelectric/electrostrictive (P/E) dome unimorph

Abstract

We present a new type of actuator named bilayer piezoelectric/electrostrictive dome unimorph (BIPEDU), fabricated by attaching a piezoelectric-electrostrictive monolithic bilayer composites (PE-MBLC) to a metal plate. Various ratios of piezoelectric/electrostrictive (P/E) volume percent were used to form PE-MBLC. It was found that d33 eff and Keff in PE… (More)
