The materials to be processed are in particular to piezoelectric ceramics and composite materials, which are usually made of piezoelectric ceramic and a polymer filling.
An elliptic hole with a major axis perpendicular to the polarization direction inside piezoelectric ceramic and the field variables around the cavity were studied in [13].
The idea of using a composite material consisting of an active piezoelectric ceramic fibrous phase embedded in a polymeric matrix phase has been investigated by a number of researchers.
Since most polymers have a lower dielectric constant compared with piezoelectric ceramic materials, most of the applied electric field will pass through the lower dielectric constant phase.
Developed by a team led by Canan Dagdeviren, at the time a doctoral candidate at the University of Illinois, these piezoelectric ceramic nano materials could enable future pacemakers to convert the body's autonomic physical motion to electrical power by bending and stretching through direct contact with the beating heart, rising diaphragm, or expanding lungs.
The team starts with piezoelectric ceramic or crystal and uses lapping and polishing machines to thin the material, and a dicing machine built for the semiconductor industry to cut it.
The company applies piezoelectric ceramic properties to create valves that are energy-efficient, compact, quiet, exhibit no heat build-up and can deliver proportional control.
