Abstract

The recent developments of piezoelectric and related ceramic actuators are reviewed with particular focus on the improvement of actuator materials, device designs, and applications. Brief descriptions of four ceramic actuator materials, namely, relaxor single crystal transducers, epitaxial PZT films, phase change materials, and photostrictive actuators, are provided.
