Abstract

Contemporary piezoelectronics are generally quite rigid, restricting them to use in high-frequency low-transient implementations like quartz clocks, piezoelectric buzzers, etc. We explore the feasibility of flexible polymers doped with Barium Titanate (BaTiO3) nanoparticles as functional piezoelectric devices. Varying concentrations of Barium Titanate were used, and the resulting characteristics were measured directly using an oscilloscope. Samples with between 6 and 20weight percent Barium Titanate were created and tested, and significant electrical responses resulting from mechanical interaction were measured and contrasted against a control, giving high confidence that the created material is piezoelectric.
