The next simplest shape is perhaps a U-shape-like an expanded V-the arms of the U being pushed slightly outwards; with the median plane cutting the U in half horizontally, top and bottom, the arms become the portions in the group on one side, the base the portion in the group on the other side. In both the V- and U-shaped devices there are three distinct piezoelectric portion, two in the top group and one in the bottom group.
The distinction is as that between a sandwich, where, though there are two layers of bread plus a layer of filling, nevertheless the combination makes a notionally indivisible whole, and a pack of cards, where there are many individual cards stacked one against the next yet remaining separate. The upper (as viewed) corrugations 41 are in a generally planar group on the opposite side of the median plane MP to the group of its lower corrugations 42, and in the example shown there is a single bottom electrode (not shown separately, but earthed/grounded), while the top electrodes (again not shown separately) are alternately plus and minus as indicated by the symbols in the circles.
This means that the proposed invention enables there to be designed a bender suited for use with a specific voltage-which is determined by the nature of the piezoelectric material and the thickness of the layer-and quite independently of the desired motion or blocking force-which depend on the generated force, and particularly on the stiffness and rigidity of the device (the greater these are the less the device will bend and buckle when pushing against something). Thus, if each piezoelectric-layer portion in the group on one side of the median is expanded/lengthened then the whole will become convex with that group on the outside, while if instead each layer portion in the group on the other side is expanded/lengthened then the whole will become convex with that group on the outside. Thus, in FIG. 3A the median plane runs horizontally (as viewed) through the V so that its two tip portions 21 form a generally planar group lying on one side of the median plane MP while its lower v section 22 is the group on the other side.

6B, C and D show these two types of corrugation, one radial (6B), the other circumferential (6C,D). FIG. This type of structure, novel and inventive in its own right, demonstrates a device geometry that significantly amplifies the normal relatively small deformation of piezoelectric materials to produce a large displacement. Therefore the geometry shown in FIG. This geometry can produce a large actuation device pressed from a single layer of piezoelectric material.
One such field will be from neutral to plus-upwards, as shown-while the adjacent ones will be from minus to neutral-downwards, as shown. The applied voltage alternates between adjacent electrode pairs from positive to negative voltage as indicated by the circled plus and minus signs. The dimensions of devices of the invention may vary from fractions of a millimetre to many millimetres.

The advantage of this type of deformation is that it enables devices to be stacked, one on top of the next (rather like the crease of a piano accordion bellows), to amplify the movement. 1A, the top electrodes 13 are separate but the bottom electrode 14 is a single, continuous electrode. It will thus be appreciated that the appropriate “bend” result can be achieved either by poling the complete piezoelectric layer in the same direction and then applying the activating field to the top and bottom portions in opposite directions, the top in one and the bottom in the other, or doing it the other way round, poling the layer’s portions oppositely-the top ones one way, the bottom ones the other-and applying a single activating field in the same direction all over.

It will be easy to see that were the peak portions (top group) to expand and the trough portions (bottom group) to contract, the body would exhibit a tighter, more forceful, downwards bend. The portions of the sheet represented by the peaks (on the top side) are thus disposed in a generally-planar group which is spatially separated from, and distinct from, yet faces the similar generally-planar group formed from the portions represented by the troughs (on the bottom side). The centre line running along that section from side to side extends all the way along the sheet, and thus forms the sheet’s median plane; half of the corrugations are on one side of that plane-the top, say-and the other half are on the other side-the bottom. The device of the invention has a simple, single layer of piezoelectric material physically shaped so as to have separate, distinct piezoelectric portions in two groups one on each side of a nominal median plane through the whole body.
In one aspect, therefore, the invention provides a piezoelectric device the body of which is a simple, single layer of piezoelectric material physically shaped so as to have a multiplicity of seperate, distinct piezoelectric portions disposed in two generally planar groups that extend along, one on each side of, a nominal median plane through the whole body, which groups are thus spatially separated by and face each other across that median plane, with the result that any piezoelectric portion dimension change in the group on one side of the median plane will tend to bend the device normal to the median plane in the opposite direction to the same-sense piezoelectric portion dimension change in the group on the other side of that median plane. In the device of the invention the piezoelectric portion groups one on each side of a nominal median plane through the whole body. FIGS. 7A-D show (in plan, perspective, side and end view) a linear strip corrugated device of the invention.

5A where line 53 indicates the split electrodes. Dolor muscular en el gluteo . Thus, a corrugated bimorph device as known in the Art, where the peaks are activated in the opposite sense to the troughs, will deform so as the increase or decrease the wavelength of the corrugations, and so it will change shape-it will expand or contract-in the plane of the corrugations. Thus, the required corrugated shapes can be embossed into a compliant sheet of piezoelectric material prior to sintering, the required shape simultaneously being cut from the sheet using the same press tool.
Thus, it provides a piezoelectric device that is a generally planar single-layer arcuate strip-like body having overall a broken annular shape, the body being physically shaped in a direction along its arcuate length so as to have corrugations extending across the strip, these corrugations forming separate, distinct piezoelectric-portion groups extending along and on each side of a nominal median plane through the whole body, which groups are thus spatially separated by and face each other across that median plane, with the result that any piezoelectric portion dimension change in the group on one side of the median plane will tend to bend the strip normal to the median plane across its length in the opposite direction to the same sense piezoelectric portion dimension change in the group on the other side of that median plane.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION FIG. 1A shows in perspective a single-layer corrugated piezoelectric device of the invention; it shows how a straight bender can be made from merely a single layer of piezoelectric material and the appropriate electrodes. 6A shows, from the side, how each device moves upon actuation-moving from a generally flat, planar object (the solid outline) to take up a domed shape (the dashed outline). 6B made from PZT4D would be an outer diameter of 15 mm, a thickness of 20 ìm, and a mass of 27 mg.

Much interest is presently being shown in the use of piezoelectric materials to construct actuators for a wide variety of mechanical devices, ranging from loudspeaker drivers to camera lens focusing systems, from electric toothbrushes to computer disk drive head positioners, and from aircraft-wing de-icers to gas valve controllers. The dome should then exhibit a corrugation amplitude of 20 ìm, and a corrugation pitch of approximately 0.5 mm. Many, even most, of these actuators take the form of a device known as a “bender”-either a composite of a single thin flat elongate layer (like a plank) of piezoelectric material and a similar but inactive layer bonded together face to face to form a beam (a unimorph) and provided with activation electrodes, or a composite of two such piezoelectric material layers similarly bonded (a bimorph) and with electrodes both on each external face and also between the two bonded faces. So, the body is physically shaped, advantageously across its length (in cross section), so as to have separate, distinct piezoelectric portions in two groups one on each side of a nominal median plane through the whole body.
