ABSTRACT
The article highlights the search for a lead-free alternative with strong piezoelectric properties for use in transducers, actuators and other applications of ferroelectric ceramic materials. The PZT, particularly at the so-called morphotropic phase boundary, generates the strongest piezoelectric response and it happens in solid solution at about 50 mole percent. A team from Iowa State University led by associate professor Xiaoli Tan is experimenting an alternative.
