A new alliance in polymer testing, this sample holder enables fast, accurate measurement of piezoelectric d32 and d31 parameters of polymer piezoelectric films, including polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) and variants.
In collaboration with aixAACT Systems GmbH, we are delighted to share that Electrosciences will be launching our first commercial product – the EPSY31 at the International Symposium on Advanced Ferroelectrics, ISAF, in Tours, France on the 27th-30th June 2022.
It includes an integrated load cell, displacement transducer and charge amplifier, and uses lock-in amplification to create a very sensitive measurement device that can also access other electromechanical properties.
From sonar and hydrophones to medical imaging, touch sensing screens and beyond, as the commercial application of piezoelectric polymers rapidly grows, so the need for the accurate evaluation of material properties is key to reducing prototype development time and costs.
Our new Piezoelectric Meter incorporates integrated transducers and amplifiers, utilizing novel methods to create a very sensitive measurement device that provides a fast and accurate determination of the piezoelectric properties of electroded PVDF film.
The device will support materials innovation by delivering new, cost effective, highly accurate QA measurement probes that can be integrated in line with large scale production processes, or offline for R&D purposes.
