Influence of Fiber Properties on the Performance of Piezoelectric 1-3 Composites
In this work, 1-3 composites, which required for different devices applications, with the (PZT)-based (PZT-5, PMnS-PZN-PZT and PSN-PZN-PZT) piezoelectric fibers produced via a VPP method have been investigated. The relationship between the dielectric and piezoelectric properties of the 1-3 composites and different ceramic fibers with various aspect radios has been compared. We conclude that the properties of the 1-3 composites are well followed with the properties of the piezoelectric fibers, so the performance of the 1-3 composites can be improved for various devices by tuning the fiber properties.
