Title:
PIEZOELECTRIC ACTUATOR AND PIEZOELECTRIC ACTUATOR DRIVE METHOD
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/172064
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
This piezoelectric actuator comprises: a layered body including a plurality of flat electrodes and a plurality of piezoelectric ceramic layers, which have been layered; a low-potential external electrode provided on one of the end faces of the layered body; and a high-potential external electrode provided on the other end face of the layered body. The flat electrodes include low-potential flat electrodes connected electrically to the low potential external electrode and high-potential flat electrodes connected electrically to the high-potential external electrode, the low-potential flat electrodes and the high-potential flat electrodes being positioned alternately in the layering direction. On one of the main surfaces of the layered body, the flat electrode positioned on the outermost side is a low-potential flat electrode. The inner side of this low-potential flat electrode is in contact with the - side of the polarization of an active region, and the outer side of this low-potential flat electrode is exposed to the exterior. On the other main surface of the layered body, no high-potential flat electrode is exposed to the exterior.
