Lanthanum substituted lead zirconate titanate (PLZT) fine scale piezoelectric fibers (<60 /spl mu/m) were fabricated for use in high frequency ultrasonic imaging transducers. Single fiber filaments, ranging from 10 to 60 /spl mu/m in diameter, were produced in a continuous fashion using metal alkoxide sol-gel technology. Microstructural and electrical characteristics of these fibers were determined under different pyrolysis conditions to obtain crack free, dense fibers. Final grain sizes were 1… CONTINUE READING
