Abstract: Hydroxyapatite (HA) is a leading biocompatible material extensively used for bone implants as a porous ceramic graft and as a bioactive coating. Electrical characteristics of HA can be employed in implantable devices for real-time in vivo pressure sensor applications such as in knee or hip prosthesis. In particular, high piezo and pyroelectricity of HA, its polarisation by electron beam and selective adsorption of proteins on polarised domains indicate the potential for real-time biosensing applications of HA. For this purpose, a comprehensive understanding of the dielectric behaviour of different forms of HA over a frequency range relevant for biomedical sensing is critical. Such information for HA, especially its frequency dependent dielectric behaviour over the GHz range, is rare. To this end, we report on novel investigations of properties of HA in powder and film forms in the GHz frequency range.

Abstract: The PZT thin film was deposited by R.F. Magnetron sputtering with Pb 1.1Zr0.53Ti0.47O3 target. When interlayers were inserted at the between PZT and Pt, The grain growth of the PZT thin films was considerably improved by various interlayers (PbO, TiO2, TiO2/PbO) and had low-processing temperature. Compared to the pure PZT thin films, pyroelectric properties of the PZT thin films inserted by interlayers were relatively measured high value. In particular, PZT thin film deposited on interlayer(PbO) was appeared the best pyroelectric properties (P=189.4μ C/㎠K, FD=12.7×10-6Pa-1/2, FV=0.018㎡/C) respectively. As a result of XPS depth profile analysis, both PZT thin film and interlayers were confirmed as independently existing layer respectively.

Abstract: MnO2 doped Bi0.5(Na0.82K0.18)0.5TiO3/P(VDF-TrFE) 0-3 composites with high pyroelectric coefficient were prepared for different volume fractions of MnO2 doped Bi0.5(Na0.82K0.18)0.5TiO3 ceramic powder in P(VDF-TrFE) copolymer matrix. The dielectric constant, dielectric loss and the piezoelectric coefficient increased as MnO2 doped Bi0.5(Na0.82K0.18)0.5TiO3 ceramic volume fraction increased. The pyroelectric coefficient and figure of merit of Bi0.5(Na0.82K0.18)0.5TiO3/P(VDF-TrFE) with different MnO2 amount and 0.8mol% MnO2 doped Bi0.5(Na0.82K0.18)0.5TiO3/P(VDF-TrFE) as a function of ceramic volume fraction were studied respectively. The results indicated that 0.8mol% MnO2 doped Bi0.5(Na0.82K0.18)0.5TiO3/P(VDF-TrFE) in 20vol% ceramic volume fraction show the best pyroelectric properties with pyroelectric coefficient p= 7.8×10-5C/m2K and figure of merit FD=11.4×10-6Pa-0.5.

Abstract: Ferroelectric0.90Bi0.5Na0.5TiO3-0.10BaTiO3 (0.90BNT-0.10BT) thin film with single perovskite phase is prepared using an improved sol-gel spin coating method onto indium-tin-oxide (ITO) glass substrates. A new solution process is developed for the preparation of precursor solution which is stable in air, presenting a low gelation and trend to the formation of precipitates. The as-prepared thin film is crystallized into single perovskite phase and has good ferroelectric properties. It is remarkable that the thin films show excellent heat-to-electrical energy conversion properties. The results of this work for the first time demonstrate the feasibility of using lead-free BNT-BT films for pyroelectric energy harvesting.
