An investigation of PDMS structures for optimized ferroelectret performance

Shi, Junjie, Zhu, Dibin and Beeby, S.P. (2014) An investigation of PDMS structures for optimized ferroelectret performance Journal of Physics: Conference Series, 557, p. 12104. (doi:10.1088/1742-6596/557/1/012104).

This paper reports the ANSYS simulation and fabrication processes for optimising PDMS ferroelectret performance. The proposed model extends the previously published analytical models and compares this with simulation of individual void geometry. The ferroelectret material is fabricated from PDMS using 3D-printed plastic moulds. The
analytical model and Ansys simulation results predict the variation in performance of the PDMS ferroelectret with the different void geometry and surface charge density. The theoretical maximum piezoelectric coefficient d33 achieved was about 220 pC/N. The experimental maximum d33 obtained was 172 pC/N
