Application - PiezoInstitute

Applications

The aims of the Piezo Institute include miniaturisation and integration of piezo structures into multifunctional devices, such as sensors for monitorin gradiation, temperature and biological threats. New transducers for medical imaging, underwater acoustics and telecommunication systems are improving sensing performance and environmental efficiency. Innovative piezo-based devices enable implants for health monitoring and targeted drug delivery, and disposable probes to inspect and treat cardiovascular disease.

Piezoelectric technologies are already delivering benefits in:

  • Aerospace, automotive, transport & defence
  • Energy (lighting the homes)
  • Healthcare
  • Work, home and leisure
  • Mining, oil and gas
  • Agriculture, food & water
  • Manufacturing
  • Telecommunications
  • Lead-free Piezo
