Fabrication Approaches for Piezoelectric Materials

Bhavya Padha, Sonali Verma, Sandeep Arya

After decades of study and development, piezoelectric materials have been used in various applications. Piezoelectric material is highly acknowledged as one of the primary functional materials in precision and acoustic engineering fields. Researchers are being pushed to explore novel materials and device combinations for new applications due to increasing demand, notably from the electrical, energy, and biomedical sectors. On the other hand, engineers are always working to enhance existing technology. Since the field has such a broad reach, it is vital to present an overview of the many areas of piezoelectric materials. This chapter focuses on the fabrication of different piezoelectric materials, applications, and challenges.
