Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

The piezoelectric/ultrasonic sensor and actuator is an important member of the sensor and actuator family. They utilize the piezoelectric effect and vibration excited through piezoelectric materials to implement sensing and actuating functions. Although they have already been applied in almost every industrial field, advances in piezoelectric materials and in the working principles, fabrication process, structure design, and system integration will definitely further widen the application range of piezoelectric/ultrasonic sensors and actuators. Following 1st Volume on this topic (https://www.mdpi.com/topics/piezo_ultrasonic_sensors_actuators), we would like to introduce 2nd Volume. This interdisciplinary topic covers the latest advances in piezoelectric/ultrasonic sensors and actuators, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • New piezoelectric materials;
  • Development in the working principles of piezoelectric/ultrasonic sensors and actuators;
  • Ultrasonic physical/chemical effects;
  • Piezoelectric transducers;
  • New sensing and actuating functions of piezoelectric devices;
  • The modeling of piezoelectric/ultrasonic sensors and actuators;
  • New topological structures of piezoelectric/ultrasonic actuators;
  • Efficient fabrication methods for piezoelectric sensors and actuators;
  • Ultrasonic catalysis and its applications;
  • The design and integration of ultrasonic sensor and actuator systems;
  • The application of machining learning methods in piezoelectric/ultrasonic sensor systems;
  • Piezoelectric/ultrasonic-sensor-based high-performance measurement and analysis;
  • Ultrasonic manipulation, treatment, fabrication, drive, etc.;
  • The application of ultrasonic actuation in sensing systems;
  • The application of ultrasonic sensing in actuation systems.

This paper presents a new approach to monitoring ultrasonic systems using structurally integrated piezoceramics. These are integrated into the sonotrode at different points and with different orientations. The procedure for integrating the piezoceramics into the sonotrode and their performance is experimentally investigated. We examine whether the measured signal can be used to determine the optimal operating frequency of the ultrasonic system, if integrating several piezoceramics enables discernment of the current vibration shape, and if the piezoceramics can withstand the high strains caused by the vibrations in a frequency range of approximately 20–25 kHz. The signals from the piezoceramic sensors are compared to the real-time displacement at different points of the sonotrode using a 3D laser scanning vibrometer. To evaluate the performance of the sensors, different kinds of excitation of the ultrasonic system are chosen. Full article
