High performance high-power textured Mn/Cu-doped PIN-PMN-PT ceramics
Piezoelectric ceramics with combinatory soft and hard characteristics are highly desired for high-power applications. However, it remains grand challenge to achieve simultaneous presence of hard (e.g. high coercive field, E-c; high mechanical quality factor, Q(m)) and soft (e.g. high piezoelectric constant, d ; high electromechanical coupling factor, k ) piezoelectric properties in piezoelectric ceramics since the mechanism controlling the hard behavior (pinned domain walls) will significantly reduce the soft behavior. Here, we address this grand challenge and demonstrate textured MnO2 and CuO co-doped Pb(In1/2Nb1/2)O-3-Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O-3-PbTiO3 (PIN-PMN-PT) ceramics exhibiting ultrahigh combined soft and hard piezoelectric properties (d(33) = 713 pC N-1, k(31) = 0.52, Q(m)approximate to 950, E-c = 9.6 kV cm(-1), tan delta = 0.45%). The outstanding electromechanical properties are explained by considering composition/phase selection, crystallographic anisotropy and defect engineering. Phase-field model in conjunction with high resolution electron microscopy and diffraction techniques is utilized to delineate the contributions arising from intrinsic piezoelectric response, domain dynamics, and local structural heterogeneity. These results will have significant impact in the development of high-power transducers and actuators. (C) 2022 Acta Materialia Inc. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
