Preparation and resonant properties of hard and soft internally electroded PZT bars are described. The presence of cofired platinum internal electrodes is shown to have little effect on the resonance behavior of hard PZT. Piezoelectric transformers having internally electroded primaries and secondaries are compared with conventional devices and show improved transformer ratio and power handling capability.
