Piezoelectric Bimorphs

What are Piezoelectric Bimorphs? Piezoelectric bimorphs, as the name suggests, involve two separate pieces of piezoelectric ceramic put together in such a way that when a voltage is applied, the piece bends (only actuators do this, of course. Sensors and other applications may vary). This is a way to greatly magnify the power and range [...]

Multilayer Piezoelectric Actuators

What are Multilayer Piezoelectric Actuators? Multilayer piezoelectric actuators, also known as stack actuators, is exactly what it sounds like: it’s a stack of multiple thin piezoelectric actuators. Due to several properties of piezoelectric crystals, this results in a multiplicative effect on the individual components’ output for the same voltage. In other words, where a single [...]
