Re: Piezoelectric dimensions problem in energy harvesting

  1. Sep 19, 2011 #1

    I am doing project on piezoelectric energy harvesting which is a cantilever structure using COMSOL. I have some doubts related to my project. I designed cantilever structure having three layers substrate (SiC), piezo (ZnO) and electrode (Al). My doubt is that when piezoelectric layer thickness is increasing, generated electric potential values are nonlinear . But I saw theoritically electric potential is directly proportional to thickness of piezoelectric. Please anyone share the information regarding this topic.

    Thank you
