ECS Intranet:
Ferroelectric composite sol-gel fabrication

This research will benefit any device manufacturing that requires ferroelectric active layers with thickness in the range 10 to 100 microns. In the short term, investigations into both piezoelectric and pyroelectric materials will allow the integration of this fabrication process into numerous devices. Examples range from actuators, sound and pressure sensors to IR 'uncooled' thermal detectors. In the longer term it is anticipated that the results from these trials may offer benefits to other manufacturing techniques, such as ceramic processing. There is also interest into incorporating the stable 'composite' suspension into the more conventional screen printing technique.
