Characterization of 3D Printed Piezoelectric Sensors Conference Paper uri icon


  • © 2016 IEEE. Previous results demonstrated piezoelectricity in 3D printed PVDF, however these results showed near undetectable signal levels and inconsistent piezoelectric behavior. This paper presents far improved sensor performance, and the first characterization of the piezoelectric properties of 3D printed PVDF. A value for d33 of 0.36 ± 0.13 pC/N was discovered for a 35mm by 35mm single layer wafer.
