Design, Modeling, Fabrication and Control of PMN-PT Piezoelectric Systems

Abstract : This work proposes the use of a novel material, called PMN-PT, that futher aids the miniaturizationof complex systems used in different technologies. The work is presented within the collaborativeframework of two projects, MIOP and ADMAN. The end-needs account for actuators capable ofdelivering high displacement, while maintaining system simplicity and reliability. The focus is onthe versatility of the PMN-PT piezoelectric material, due to its electro-mechanical properties. Thework includes an overview on what influences the electro-mechanical properties focusing on twodifferent, though very potent cuts: anisotropic [011] and longitudinal [001]. They were chosen forgenerating large displacement and high dynamics with small volume. For PMN-PT[001] a cantileverstructure was studied, for which the model was improved taking into account the material specificities.Displacements and forces were found to be superior to a similarly dimensioned PZT actuator, whilsthaving reduced non-linearities. This is exemplified with a 6 DoF capable microgripper. The PMNPT[001] longitudinal cut based actuator study follows. This is done by using PMN-PT as a simple,easy to integrate, bulk actuator. The findings demonstrate the improvements PMN-PT can bringto micro-spectrometry and image correction with micro-mirror displacement. A bulk PMN-PT microactuator was integrated into a MOEMS compatible structure and presented.
