Large field-induced strains in a lead-free piezoelectric material.
TLDR
The results demonstrate the potential of BiFeO(3) as a substitute for lead-based materials in future piezoelectric applications and show that large strains result from moving the boundaries between tetragonal- and rhombohedral-like phases, which changes the phase stability of the mixture. Expand
Lead-free piezoceramics
TLDR
A lead-free piezoelectric ceramic with an electric-field-induced strain comparable to typical actuator-grade PZT is reported, achieved through the combination of the discovery of a morphotropic phase boundary in an alkaline niobate-based perovskite solid solution, and the development of a processing route leading to highly textured polycrystals.
