  • Project Start Date

  • Timeline

Current marketing strategy of piezoelectricity Industry
2018 : the 40th year of Piezoelectric
Objective (s)

• To synthesize the lead free glassceramic with high piezoelectric coefficient
• Fabrication of basic and modified cantilever

Glass ceramics

A Glass Ceramic is a solid material, partly crystalline and partly glassy, formed by the controlled crystallization

Expected Outcome

• Field-induced ferroelectricity in paraelectric phase of Barium strontiumtitanate (communicated)
• Enhancement in pyroelectricity of polar Ba0.9Sr0.1TiO3 -TeO2 glassceramics (communicated)
• Conduction mechanism of samariumferrite substituted sodium niobate ceramics
