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.
