Abstract
Develop experimental methods and evaluate the linear and non-linear electromechanical properties of relaxor piezoelectric crystals under temperature-stress-field conditions relevant to naval SONAR systems. The domain of phase stability and property linearity for first generation binary, second generation ternary, and third generation doped materials should be assessed to optimize naval SONAR transducer designs. Work under this topic will characterize the linear and non-linear electromechanical properties of a broad range of materials compositions under a broad range of temperature-field-stress conditions to delineate the composition/properties that optimize a variety of naval SONAR transducers.
