Abstract
This report presents our characterisation of PC5K high strain lead zirconate titanate (PZT) ceramic and ESC1 electrostrictive ceramic samples manufactured by Morgan Matroc Ltd. (Unilator Division) of the UK. The radial and thickness extensional mode resonances of the PZT material have been analysed to derive the relevant material constants and the hydrostatic properties of the material have been evaluated. The dielectric properties of the electrostrictive material have been determined. The direct strain-voltage relationship has been studied in the case of both materials.
