Abstract

Piezoelectric composites, such as those useful for ink jet drop generators, can be fabricated utilizing ceramic particles which can have strong piezoelectric proper-ties (e.g., PZT) and a polymer which provides desirable mechanical properties. Such composites have the added advantage of being capable of manufacture in much larger areas than typical solid ceramic materials.
