PZT-based compounds

PZT-based compounds (Pb[ZrxTi1-x]O3 0ceramic perovskite materials that develop a voltage difference across two of its facets when highly compressed.


PZT-based compounds are composed of the chemical element lead, the mineral zircon, and the chemical compound titanate which are combined under extremely high temperatures. A mechanical filter is then used to filter out the particulates.


PZT-based compounds are primarily used in the manufacturing of ultrasound transducers. A secondary use is in the manufacturing of ceramic capacitors and chips.
