    How to program a Pulse generator

    Actually i have a bimorph piezoelectric material (piezo-film deposited in Stainless steel substrate), and based on simulation the resonant frequency is around 20Hz.

    How to program a Pulse generator

    I'm sorry i didn't tell the whole story. So first i have experiment in piezoelectric material. I will apply AC voltage (using pulse generator) and then i will measure the output voltage using oscilloscope. From that i need to determine the resonant frequency, by sweeping the frequency. When i...

    How to program a Pulse generator

    So First, your saying using "External Width Mode" we can program the frequency, but we need an external sweep generator? (can you provide brand and model?). Second, if we set the frequency in 2Hz, based on my experiment the generated voltage is not stable (range from 20mV-10mV), but as your...

    How to program a Pulse generator

    The parameter that i used are: Amplitude voltage = 5V, delay =0.0ns, Resistance = 50 ohms, cycle =50% and frequency = 1 to 100 with an 0.1 interval and have 2 seconds delay. Thank you very much for your help!

    How to program a Pulse generator

    Hi there! is anyone here working with a pulse generator? I have Agilent 8114A Pulse generator i want to vary the frequency automatically like 1.1Hz to 10.1Hz with 1-2 secs delay. This pulse generator have a HP-IB bus at the back that can connect in a PC. Base on the Manual it can program using...

    Resonant frequency of Piezoelectric material

    No sir, i vary the frequency manually (from 1-100hz because the simulation results fall at 50hz). I will take note your suggestion but i need to plot voltage vs. frequency.

    Resonant frequency of Piezoelectric material

    Yes sir you're right! basically another way is to measure the current across the piezoelectric material as the frequency varies. But i need to plot the voltage vs. frequency. So using oscilloscope i can determine the voltage amplitude due to vibration, But then as i said no change in voltage...

    Resonant frequency of Piezoelectric material

    So i have a piezoelectric film deposited in the metal substrate and i want to determine the resonant frequency. Basically i can determine the resonant frequency base on the dimensions. But i need to proved it using experimental set-up. So i applied AC Voltage to the material then the material...

    Vibrational frequency of Piezoelectric effect

    when a piezoelectric material experience a stress it generates voltage, and also when you applied voltage the piezo-material experience a vibrational frequency. Using oscilloscope we can determine the induced frequency of the piezo-material with respect to the applied voltage. Now given the...

    Determine the shear strain

    I don't know how to solve this kind of problem: Given a crystal and its volume V. This Crystal is subjected to a shear stress making a slip plane (h k l ) in a slip direction [h k l]. Given also the lattice parameter a and slip plane spacing L, and the edge dislocation a/2 that passed halfway...

    What is the stress of the rotated axis

    Given only the triaxial stresses: ax = 10 MPa (along [100]), ay = 10 MPa (along [010]), and ax = -30 MPa (along [001]), what is now the components of stresses in rotated axis? so based on the equation aT = [L][a][LT] let aT the components of stress of rotated axis, L the direction cosine, LT...

    Effective annealing parameters in N-doped Zinc oxide

    Good day every one! Based on my research as you increased the temperature, the grain size become bigger and the thickness decreased, but in some paper, thickness increased. The effects of annealing temperature is almost the same to the temperature. But if you will considering doping for...

    Relationship of bulk modulus and fractional volume change

    So my question is, if the bulk modulus change by 5%, what is the fractional volume change value? is it times 0.05 or divided by 0.05? or the fractional volume change still the same?

    Work done up to fracture

    Good day everyone! i have a problem dealing with the fracture analysis. We all know that the work done per unit volume is equal to the area under the curve of stress-strain curve or we can express it in terms of integral form, and if we're looking at necking point stress can be express in this...

    Silicon wafer as substrate in Zinc oxide thin films

    But what is the difference of using glass substrate over silicon substrate? i think the mismatch of crystal parameters would help not to diffuse zinc oxide on Si under a fabrication method but remain on the surface of the silicon.
