Chapter 4. Acoustic-Wave Piezoelectric and Pyroelectric Sensors Based on PZT Thick Films

(Vitorio Ferrari)





The operating principles, design and manufacturing in thick-film technology (TFT) of sensors based on the piezoelectric and pyroelectric properties of lead zirconate titanate (PZT) thick films are described. In particular, the attention is focused on acoustic-wave piezoelectric sensors for physical and chemical quantities, and on pyroelectric sensors and arrays for light spot position measurement.

Keywords:  piezoelectric sensor, pyroelectric sensor, acoustic-wave sensor, sensor array, thick-film technology, lead zirconate titanate (PZT).
