Pondering Piezo Particles

Piezoelectric ceramics are used widely, including in medical ultrasound devices, inhalers, automotive back-up sensors, aerospace SONAR, BBQ grill ignitors, and humidifiers. Because of their excellent ability to transform electrical energy into mechanical energy and vice versa, these piezoelectric powder compounds are often modified during manufacturing process to suite a variety of applications.

Particle size plays a key role in the manufacture and performance of these materials. In this webinar, Kiwan Park shares his micro view of the macro use of piezoceramics as it relates to powder particle size.
