Thin and Flexible Piezoelectric Sensors

P(VDF-TrFE), Piezotech® FC copolymers, are piezoelectric, pyroelectric, printable, and flexible. These printable polymers are very chemically stable and exhibit high sensitivities (from mPa to GPa) over a wide range of frequencies (from mHz to GHz). Their low power consumption does not require an external power source. Furthermore, they exhibit excellent mechanical properties (elastic modulus up to 5 GPa and flexibility up to 300%). Hence, sensors fabricated from Piezotech® FC copolymers enable unique applications. They are usually used in thickness mode (d33).
