High Performance PMN-PT Piezoelectric Single Crystal

Unparalleled piezoelectrics enable superior bandwidth and output in your system to propel you ahead of the competition.

Single crystal PMN-PT possesses exceptional properties and is poised to revolutionize applications from medical ultrasound to adaptive optics and energy harvesting.TRS crystals exhibit 5x the strain energy density and significantly higher electromechanical coupling than conventional piezoceramics.

Applications and Advantages

Acoustics

  • Unparalleled piezoelectrics enable superior bandwidth and output in your system to propel you ahead of the competition.
  • Single crystal PMN-PT possesses exceptional properties and is poised to revolutionize applications from medical ultrasound to adaptive optics and energy harvesting. TRS crystals exhibit 5x the strain energy density and significantly higher electromechanical coupling than conventional piezoceramics.
  • Applications and Advantages

Actuation

  • Superior strain at ambient and cryogenic temperatures (crystal strain at 77K comparable to ceramic strain at 293K)
  • Lower drive fields possible compared to ceramics
  • Unique modes allow for novel designs
