D1.1 - High Temperature Stability of New Single Crystal Piezoelectric Sensors

C. Cavalloni, R. Sommer & M. Waser
A new generation of high temperature sensors offering new perspectives in terms of performance and availability is in development. The sensors are based on superior synthetic monocrystalline piezoelectric materials. These crystals, known under the tradename PiezoStar®, have been well proved in numerous applications in harsh environments since many years. Among the outstanding properties of these crystals is their ability to perform continuously at temperatures above 600°C, the absence of pyroelectricity, great stability with no twinning...
