Ferroelectrics can be utilized in various devices such ash - p e ~ ~ i v i t y ~g dielectrics, pyroelectric piezoelectric electrooptic and sensors, devices, devices PTC components.Theindustriesareproducinglargeamountsofsimpledevices,e.g. ceramic capacitors, piezoelectric igniters, buzzers and PTC e ~ s t o r continuously. th s But until now ferroelectric devices have failed to reach co~ercialization more in functionalcases.Inthelightsensor,forexample,semiconductivematerialsare superior to ferroelectrics in response speed and sensitivity. Magnetic devices are much more popular in the memory field, and liquid crystals are typically used for optical displays. Ferroelectric devices often fail to be developed in the cases where competitive materials exist. This is mainly due to a lack of systematic a c c ~ u l a t i o n of hndamental knowledge of the materials and developmental experiences on the devices.

Duringmy12-yearteaching periodon"FerroelectricDevices," I foundthatno suitable textbook is available in this particular field, except some professional books I decidedtowriteasingle-authored likemulti-authorpapercollections.Hence, textbook based on my lecture notes, including my device development philos~phy. This textbook introduces theoretical the backgroundferroelectric of devices, practical materials, device designs, drivelcontrol techniques and typical applications, andlooksforwardtothe hture progressinthisfield.Thoughthediscoveryof ferroelectricity i s relativelyold,sincethedevicedevelopmentisreallynewand interdisciplinary, it is probably impossible to cover all the recent studies in a limited page book. Therefore, I selected only important and basic ideas to understand how to design develop ferroelectric and the devices, puttingparticular a focus on thidthick film devices. Let me introduce contents. the Chapterintroduces overall 1 the background, "General view of ferroelectrics," followed by the theoretical background in Chapter 2, "Mat~ematicaltreatmentofferroelectrics."Chapter 3, "Devicedesigningand fabrication processes," provides practical designing manufacturing the and of devices. Capacitor applications described Chapter are in 4, "High permittivity devices,"Chapters 5 and 6 treat thidthick filmapplications,i.e."Ferroelectric memory devices" and "Pyroelectric devices," respectively. Chapter 7, "Piezoelectric devices" deals with piezoelectric actuators and ultrasonic motors as well as acoustic transducers and piezoelectric sensors. Optical devices such as light valves, displays, wave guides and bulk photovoltaic devices are described Chapter 8, "Electrooptic in devices." In Chapters 9 and 10, we learn basic concepts of "PTC materials" and

Physicists usually treat a natural p~enomenonusing .a simple mathematical form: one is a linear approximation and anotheris a non-linear expansion theory. Hooke's law, the stress- strain relationand Ohm's law, the voltage current relation a m two of the most famous linear laws in physics. These linear relations are extended into matrix or tensor relations in linear algebra. Onthe other hand, the Maclaurin or Taylor series are popularly used to calculate slightly perturbed physical quanti~es aroundan equilibrium state inclu~ngnon-lineareffects.Inthischapter,wewill consider the tensor representation of physical properties (linear relation) pheno~enology ferr~lectricity(non-linear relation). of

In an electric field cycle n o ~ a l l y applied to the device, the resistance change corresponds to the transverse p i e z o e l e c ~strain ~ induced in the device. However, if crack or del~nation occurs in the actuator, an abno~ally large resistance change is monitored. Thus, this electrode con~guration (2) can be used for both feedback detectors (1) and shown in Fig. 1 1.3.

Ferroelec~ic devices generally have quick responses. owever, when a sharp pulse or step-like voltageis applied to a device, an unstable output ringing tends to occur just after the voltage is applied. This occurs even in capacitors and electrooptic devices, where it is sometimes called " s c r e ~ n g " because the of sound it some~mes generates. It is caused by a piezoelectrically or electrostrictively induced mechanical
re son an^.

In addition to the unstable output, pulse driving the ferroelectric generates very large tensile stresses inthedevice,sometimeslargeenoughto initiate cracks.Insuch cases, a compressivebiasstressshouldbeappliedtothedevicewith cl~ping mechanisms suchas a helical spring ora plate spring.

There are two~fferent approaches in exercising technology creativity: to find a new ~nctional effect or material and to achieve a high performance or figure of merit. These are typically called "research" and "development," respectively.

Ifyoumissedtheabove t r e chances,whatshouldyoudo?Quitresearch?The he following example is dedicated to the unlucky reader, who, like the author, missed those lucky chances. We can still research using a more systematic way, for example, by using our int~ition.The author is malcing use of (1) secondary effects and (2) scientific analogy.

(1) As is well known, any phenomenon h sprimary and secondary effects, whicha m a sometimes recognized as linear and quadratic phenomena, respectively. In electroopticdevices,thePockels and Kerreffectscorrespond to theprimary this In materials, these Secondary effects, as you leaned in textbook, actuator correspond to the piezoelectric and electrostrictive effects.

en the author started actuatorresearchin the middleofthe 197Os, precise "displacementtransducers"(weusedthisterminology initially) were required in a Space Shuttle program, in particular for " d e f o ~ b l e mirrors," for controlling the optical pathlengths several over wavelengths. Conventional piez~lec~c PZT ceramics were plaguedby hysteresis and aging effects under large electric fields; this an opticalpositioner. Electros~ction,which is the was aseriousproblemfor secondary electromech~cal coupling observed in a c e n t r o - s y ~ e crystal, is not ~c affkcted by hysteresis or aging. The response should be much faster than the time required for domain reorientation in piezoelectric~ferr~lectrics. addition, electric In poling is not required.
owever, at that time, most the people believedthat the secondary effect would of be
a minor effect, and could not provide a larger contribution than the primary Of effect.

course, this may be true in most cases, but, the author's group actually found that telaxorferroelectrics,suchastheleadmagnesium n i o b a ~ - b ~ esolid solutions d exhibit enormous electrostrictions.

The author tried i o the to consider nu' i an analogous case among the ferroelectrics. Yes, we have an ttelec~c-field dd phase transition from an antiferroelectric to ferroelectric phase. This type of phase transition should be much quicker in response and more energy efficient theoretically. After this speculation, we started to investigate zirconate based a n t i f e r r ~ l ~ ~ c s lead intensively, and discovered the "shape memory effect" in ceramic actuator materials.

Product effects are more attractive. Philips' magnet~lec~c material is a g example, which can be employed as a simple magnetic field monitor. The authork photos~ctive materials were also discovered along a similar line of reasoning. "he following anecdote citedfrom R&D Innovator13) will be of interest.

I'vemadeabreakthroughthatcouldleadtophotophones deviceswithout electrical connectionsthatconvertlightenergydirectlyintosound.Perhapsthisdiscoverywill helpcommercializeopticaltelephonenetworks.Italsocouldallowrobotstorespond directly to light; again, without a need for wire connectors. Where did I come up with the idea for this light conversion? Not with the sunlight shining through my office window, and not outside feeling the warmth of the sun, but in a dimly lit Karaoke bar. akindoftransducerthatconverts electrical I'vebeenworkingonceramicactuators energy to mechanical energy at the Tokyo Institute of Technology when the trigger for "thelight-controlledactuator"wasinitiated.In1980,oneof my friends,aprecisionmachine expert, and I were drinking together at a Karaoke bar, where many Japanese go to enjoydrinksandourownsinging. We callthisactivityour"after-5-o'clockmeeting." My friend studied ~cromechanisms as millimeter-size walking robots. He explained such that, as electrically controlled walking mechanisms become very small (on the order of a millimeter), they don't work smoothly because the frictional force drops drastically and the weight of the electric lead becomes more significant.




Afterafewdrinks,itbecomeseasiertoplay"whatif?"games.That'swhenheasked, "What if you, an expert on actuators, could produce a remote-controlled actuator? One that wouldbypasstheelectricallead?" To manypeople,"remotecontrol"equalscontrolby radio waves, light waves, or sound. Light-controlled actuators require that light energy be transduced twice: first from light energy to electrical energy, and second from electrical energy to mechanical energy. These are "photovoltaic" and "piezoelectric" effects.
A solar cell is a well-known photovoltaic device, but it doesn't generate sufficient voltage to drive a piezoelectric device. So my friend's actuator needed another way to achieve a photovoltaic effect, Along with the drinking and singing, weenjoyedthese intellectual challenges. I must have had a bit too much that night since I promised I'd make such a machine for him. But I had no idea how to do it!

While my work is applied research, I usually come home from scientific meetings about basic research with all kinds of ideas. At one of these meetings, about six months after my promise, a Russian physicist reported that a single crystal of lithium niobate produced a high electomotive force (10 kVlmm) under purple light. His talk got me excited. Could this material make power the supply the for piezoelectric actuator? Could directly it produce a mechanical force under purple light? I returned to the lab and placed a small lithium niobate plate onto a plate of piezoelectric lead zirconate titanate. Then I turned on the purple light and watched for the piezoelectric effect (mechanical defo~ation).But it was too slow, taking an hour for the voltage to get high enough to make a discernable shape change.



Then the idea hit me: what about making a single material that could used for the sensor be I placethephotovoltaicandpiezoelectriceffectsina single andtheactuator?Could ~ y m m e tcrystal? After lots of trial and error,I came up with a tungstate-doped material ~c made lead of lanthanum zirconate titanate responded to that wellpurple light. It has a large piezoelectric effect and has properties that would make it relatively easy to fabricate. makeadeviceoutofthismaterial, I pastedtwoplatesbacktoback,but:placed them in opposite polarization, then connected the edges. I shined a purple light to one side, which generated a photovoltaic voltage of 7 kV across the length. This caused plate on that side to expand by nearly 0.1% of its length, while the other (unlit) side contracted due to the piezoelectric effect thr~ugh photovol the 20 mm long, 0.4 mm thick whole fromlight. this device the For displace~ent was 150 pm, the and response was speed l second. fast This and significant response was pretty exciting.
