Improving Piezoelectric properties of PZT-Polymer composites

Recently, SmartPIE scientists developed new piezoceramic powder-polymer composites that are easy to manufacture but show enhanced properties over traditional piezopowder composites. The piezoelectric properties of the material are increased while ceramic volume fraction for maximum sensitivity is lowered leading to lighter, cheaper composites. The results were published in the Journal of Applied Physics.
