Improving the dielectric and piezoelectric properties of screen-printed low temperature PZT/polymer composite using cold isostatic pressing

Record type: Article

This paper reports an improvement in dielectric and piezoelectric properties of screen-printed PZT/polymer films for flexible electronics applications using Cold Isostatic Pressing (CIP). The investigation involved half and fully cured PZT/polymer composite pastes with weight ratio of 12:1 to investigate the effect of the CIP process on the piezoelectric and dielectric properties. It was observed that the highest dielectric and piezoelectric properties are achieved at pressures of 5 and 10 MPa for half and fully cured films respectively. The relative dielectric constants were 300 and 245 measured at 1 kHz for the half and fully cured samples. Using unoptimised poling conditions, the initial d33 values were 30 and 35 pC/N for the half and fully cured films, respectively. The fully cured sample was then poled using optimized conditions and demonstrated a d33 of approximately 44 pC/N which is an increase of 7% compared with non-CIP processed materials
