AbstractA program is proposed to examine and develop an innovative fabrication technique to produce the finest diameter ceramic piezoelectric "micro-rods." The production of large quantitities of uniform, straight piezoceramic micro-rods with diameters less than 75 um and at least three centimeters in length will be developed. Completion of this program will probe the versatility and limits of the method, examining diameter, straightness, processing rate, other shapes, and sintered quality of the ceramic piezoelectric. This program will lead to a method to manufacture fine diameter piezoceramic rods, tubes and filaments that would meet all anticipated Naval and commercial needs at economical costs.
