CuO가 PSN-PZT세라믹스의 저온소결 특성에 미치는 영향

  • Published : 2003.12.01


In this study, in order to develop the low temperature sintering ceramics for multi-layer piezoelectric transformer, PSN-PZT system ceramics were manufactured as a function of CuO addition and their dielectric and piezoelectric characteristics were Investigated. CuO addition facilitated densification at low temperature due to the effect of Cu$_2$O-PbO liquid phase. Through the X-ray diffraction pattern study, absence of second phase unwanted was confirmed. Among the specimen to which CuO was added, the 0.6wt% CuO added specimen sintered at 900$^{\circ}C$ and 920$^{\circ}C$ showed the most excellent mechanical quality factor and electromechanical coupling factor, respectively. Besides the densification accelerator, CuO acted as a accepter and increased mechanical quality. Compared with the specimen with no addition sintered at 1150$^{\circ}C$ , the 0.6wt% CuO added specimen sintered at 920$^{\circ}C$ showed the appropriate dielectric and piezoelectric characteristics for multi-layer piezoelectric transformer.
