piezoelectric in Italian
An optical fiber 35 is attached to the same surfaces of the piezoelectric plate 32.
At the same time there is a reverse piezoeffect in which electric voltage applied to piezoelectric induces its resilience.
Each fiber-optic controlled scanner is designed as a fiber-optic piezoelectric controlled delay line.
In a particular embodiment, the piezoelectric element includes at least one piezoelectric plate.
In another particular embodiment, the piezoelectric element is provided with electrodes.
Piezoelectric materials are widely used in acoustical methods of image visualization.
Several transducer types use piezoelectric materials as a mechanical intermediary device.
The fiber-optic piezoelectric controlled delay line shown in FIG. 5 operates as follows.
The length of the optical fiber 35 substantially exceeds the diameter of the piezoelectric plate 32.
