Piezoelectric ceramics in smart actuators and systems

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

In these several years piezoelectric and electro-strictive actuators have become very popular for micro-positioning in optical and precision machinery fields. Aiming at wide commercialization of these actuators, many investigations have been made in the improvement of ceramic materials for actuators, designs of the devices and control and systemization of the actuators. This paper reviews recent applications of piezoelectric/electrostrictive ceramics from a viewpoint of "smart" actuators and systems.
