Dimensions : 100*94*15mm
1.Reason to the existence of Annular Piezo Ceramic?
The essential unit which is a rhomboid or cubic shaped cage made up of atoms exists in some atomic lattice structures. Inside the cell, the cage is responsible for holding single semi-mobile ion that has numerous quantum position states. By applying electric field or by distorting the cage (applied strain), the ions post state will consequently shift. The basis or transformation to internal electric field shifts from mechanical strain is provided by coupling between the cage and central ion.
2.How can poling and depoling in Annular Piezo Ceramic materials?
The Annular Piezo Ceramic should undergo high electric field for a sometime for the alignment of randomly oriented micro-dipoles in their proper formulation since the chemical composition is not simply responsible for the piezoelectric property of ceramics. This is called “poling” due to alignment resulted from application of high voltage. a “dislodging stress” is exerted on the micro-dipoles due to the application of electric field in the opposite direction if tried. There is only temporary change in polarization if low level field are applied since it bounces back on removal. There is also partly degradation of the polarization along with partial loss of properties when medium fields are applied. Polarization in opposite direction will be resulted if high fields are applied.
3.Is there a possibility of using piezo ceramic actuators at cryogenic temperatures?
The answer is yes. From down to zero degrees Kelvin, allpiezo actuators continue to function even though it may appear counter-intuitive. Since electric fields cannot be changed by temperature at all and the inter-atomic electric fields are the basis for the piezoelectric effect, the most common piezoceramics does decrease due to piezo coupling as temperature drops. Most importantly the motion of most materials drops to about one-seventh of that measured at room at liquid helium temperatures.
