Piezoelectric Properties of PZT-5 Fiber/Epoxy Resin 1-3 Composites


Article Preview

Niobium doped Pb(Zr,Ti)O3 fiber/epoxy resin 1-3 composites with different ceramic volume fraction of 10-85% were fabricated by filling-casting method. Effects of ceramic volume fraction on electric properties were investigated. For a typical 30% ceramic content composite, the thickness coupling coefficient kt, mechanical quality factor Qm, acoustic impedance Zm and anisotropic property kt/kp were 0.67, 0.55, 11.03 MRayl and 2.23, respectively.
