Presentation Summary

  • Introduction to InSensor® PZT (Lead Zirconate Titanate) thick film technology, including deposition and patterning techniques, available substrates and potential applications.
  • Experimental setup, test structures of unimorphs fabricated using MEMS technology in combination with PZT thick films. Results of the measurements carried out using shaker system and reference accelerometer.
  • Conclusions and summary, including prospects of manufacturing energy harvesting modules comprising sensors(e.g.accelerometers) or/and actuators leading to fully integrated energy autonomous devices when combined with wireless communication.
