Optimizing dimensions of unipolar Teflon-FEP piezoelectrets with micro-system-technology

  • In this work we present a new micro-system-technology based production process for unipolar ferroelectrets. Theoretical analysis of the influence of the air-gap size on the electric field distribution as well as on the induced charge on the electrodes shows superior performance of unipolar piezoelectrets with small air-gaps. For the production of these small air-gaps we developed a new design using a photoresist thermoforming master, an integrated micro-heater and shadow masks for metallization. Unipolar piezoelectrets produced with this technology exhibit increased d33-coefficients compared to designs in previous publications. These piezoelectrets are highly preferable for energy-harvesting applications, as they promise high electric power output.
