Title

The Depolarization of Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O₃ Ferroelectrics by Cylindrical Radially Expanding Shock Waves and Its Utilization for Miniature Pulsed Power

Abstract

The effects of depolarization of Pb(Zr₀.₅₂Ti₀.₄₈)O₃ (PZT 52/48) poled ferroelectrics by cylindrical radially expanding shock waves propagated along and across the polarization vector P0 were experimentally detected. Miniature (total volume 100 cm³) autonomous generators based on these effects were capable of producing output voltage pulses with amplitudes up to 25 kV and output energies exceeding 1 J. © 2011 American Institute of Physics.
