Abstract

Flexible Piezoelectric materials promise to be very useful in a range of fields, from bio-mechanical/medical engineering and audio engineering, to fields yet established. We work on developing a new workflow that will allow the creation of complex shapes using Digital Light Processing based 3D printing technology. We accomplish this by doping photosensitive resins with barium titanate nanoparticles and polarizing these particles using a translucent sheet of conductive material. We have successfully created a thin sheet of flexible piezoelectric material using a basic setup (without 3D printing) and will continue to work on successfully printing test shapes to prove our workflow, and incorporate the 3D printing process.
