Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 61)


This book is divided into the following parts. The introduction (Chap. 1) defines the effects, gives a brief historical introduction, presents the materials investigated, and then outlines the present knowledge on the fatigue effect in ferroelectrics. The following chapters (Chaps. 2 and 3) fairly densely display the experimental results found in ferroelectric ceramics and only briefly discuss them in the context of previously known results. A larger section is devoted to the acoustic emission technique (Chap. 4). Chapter 5 then extensively discusses the possible explanations of the known and new experimental results in the context of existing and new fatigue models. Chapter 6 summarizes the recent developments in the field that have been published since the first version of this book was written. The contents are briefly summarized in Chap. 7.

    RAINBOW actuators are disc shaped actuators, mostly of PZT, which were chemically reduced on one side to significantly change the piezoelectric effect across the thickness. The strain is obtained along the thickness direction of the plate due to the warping of the plate (Haertling, 1994).Google Scholar
