Lead zirconate titanate-based thick films for high-frequency focused ultrasound transducers prepared by electrophoretic deposition


An electrophoretic deposition (EPD) process with high deposition rate was used to fabricate a curved piezoelectric thick film devoted to high-frequency transducers for medical imaging. Niobium-doped lead zirconate titanate (PZTNb) powder was stabilized in ethanol to prepare a suspension with high zeta potential and low conductivity. A gold layer, pad… (More)
