A3+ Lead-free Piezoelectric Materials and Applications


Lead (Pb)–based piezoelectric materials are well known as their excellent piezoelectric properties, which are widely used in industrial applications. However, considering the toxicity of lead and environmental protection, there is a general awareness for development of lead-free piezoelectric materials as evidenced from the RoHS legislation passed by the EU. The different class of materials is now being considered as potentially attractive alternatives to PZT-based perovskites for various applications. Then, the purpose of this symposium is to provide an international forum for scientists, engineers, and technologists to discuss and exchange ideas in understanding fundamentals of lead-free ferroelectrics and piezoelectrics; improving processing technologies for high-performance lead-free piezoelectric ceramics including thin/thick films, composites, TGG, and single crystals; characterization techniques and property-structure relationship studies; applications of lead-free piezoelectric materials. This symposium is also intended to bring together scientists, engineers, research staffs and students from Asian 3 countries (A3: China, Korea and Japan) plus some other countries (A3+), active in the field of ferroelectric and piezoelectric materials .
