Sensor Technology Receives Funding to Produce Textured Piezoceramics
According to Sensor Technology, textured ceramics are an alternative to single crystals that promise improved piezoelectric performance for a modest cost increase.
Sensor Technology Ltd., a custom piezoelectric and hydrophone producer, recently announced that it will receive funding to begin producing textured ceramics. The funding comes in the form of a non-repayable contribution of up to $178,000 from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP), a federally funded program that supports the development and commercialization of innovative Canadian technologies, products or services
“We are always trying to look forward with innovative technologies that can improve product process efficiency,” said Niru Somayajula, president and CEO of Sensor Technology. “This funding is critical as we continue to grow and expand our product offerings.”
According to Sensor Technology, textured ceramics are an alternative to single crystals that promise improved piezoelectric performance for a modest cost increase. The material reportedly incorporates the cost efficiencies of classical ceramic production with the features of single crystals that will result in higher performance levels.
“I am excited about NRC IRAP’s support of this project, as it will allow us to expedite the development and commercialization of the next generation of piezoceramics,” said Sailu Nemana, vice president of Research & Development and Ceramic Manufacturing.
