Piezoelectric Ceramics

Particle Characterization

The particle size of piezoelectric ceramics plays a crucial role in calcination and sintering temperature, which affects the processing time, and, subsequently, the performance of the final pressed component. It is for this reason that particle size analysis is used at different stages of the manufacturing process; beginning with the raw materials through the final stage of the creation of a spray-dried powder. The LA-960 is ideally suited for tracking this synthesis.

Piezoelectric Ceramics
DescriptionThis application note shows how the laser diffraction technique can be effectively used as an inspection tool for the synthesis of piezoelectric ceramics. While PZT is used as an example in this paper, the manufacturing of many other lead-free piezoelectric components are also highly dependent on particle size. The LA-960 can assist in the development and quality control of the process by rapidly determining the particle size to guide the manufacturing process, thereby, reducing production costs.
