A multilayer thick-film PZT actuator for MEMs applications

Harris, N. R., Hill, M., Torah, R., Townsend, R., Beeby, S. P., White, N. M. and Ding, J. (2005) A multilayer thick-film PZT actuator for MEMs applications At Eurosensors XIX. 01 Jan 2005.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper describes a technique for replacing the traditional bonded bulk PZT transducer, commonly used in MEMS devices, with a screen printed equivalent. Previously, the piezoelectric activity available from screen printed PZT has been lower than the bulk material, but recent developments in material composition and device structure have allowed screen printed structures to deliver powers equivalent to bulk devices.
