  1. Expanded Operating Domain Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N06T034

    Single crystal relaxor ferroelectrics, PMN-PT, have shown great promise for broad bandwidth sonar transducers. However, the benefits of PMN-PT are somewhat counterbalanced by its maximum temperature limitation (~80 to 95°C), low coercive field (~2kV/cm) and low mechanical quality factor (60-80) for compact, high power and high duty cycle applications. The new crystal compositions with expanded op ...
