Access from EThOS:
The investigation comprised three main sections: first, the development of an aqueous slurry system for tape casting PZT ceramics, second, examination of the doping influence on the sintering behaviour and on the piezoelectric properties of PZT ceramics and thirdly, the fabrication of multilayer actuators with silver-based inner electrodes, in order to investigate the influence of co-firing with inner electrodes on the sintering behaviour and the piezoelectric properties of the ceramics.
