About this book

Piezoelectric and Acoustic Materials for Transducer Applications combines discussion of the physical properties of piezoelectric and acoustic materials, with the fundamentals, design principles and fabrication methods, and their application in transducers. This book serves as a comprehensive reference on all aspects of piezoelectric materials, such as thermodynamics, crystallography, crystal chemistry, and piezoelectric composite fabrication techniques as they pertain to piezoelectric transducer design and applications.

The chapters in this book cover a wide range of topics, which are separated into four sections:

  • Section I. Fundamentals of Piezoelectricity

  • Section II. Piezoelectric and Acoustic Materials for Transducer Technology

  • Section III. Transducer Design and Principles

  • Section IV. Piezoelectric Transducer Fabrication Methods

Piezoelectric and Acoustic Materials for Transducer Applications is written by a diverse group of renowned experts from around the world, and is appropriate for scientists and engineers in a variety of disciplines.
