Abstract

Photostrictive effect in lanthanum-modified lead zirconate titanate (PLZT) ceramics, one of the promising candidates for photostrictive materials, has been investigated with different contents of La and the ratio of Zr/Ti near the morphotropic phase boundary compositions. The maximum photocurrent and photovoltage were obtained at different compositions of PLZT ceramics: maximum photocurrent at 4/48/ 52, maximum photovoltage at 5/54/46. New figures of merit for evaluating these materials, which includes both the magnitude of strain and response speed, were proposed.
