Abstract

Piezoelectric composites of PZT ceramics and several semi-crystalline polymers have been produced by embedding slender PZT rods (4 volume percent) in the polymers. The observed dielectric constants were considerably lower than that of pure PZT. The hydrostatic piezoelectric voltage coefficients of the composites were larger than PZT, even though the composite hydrostatic piezoelectric strain coefficients were lower. Composite figures of merit ranged from one-third to six times that of PZT.
