Nanoscale Characterization of Energy Generation from Piezoelectric Thin Films

Bhaskaran, Madhu; Sriram, Sharath; Ruffell, Simon; Mitchell, Arnan


We report on the use of nanoindentation to characterize in situ the voltage and current generation of piezoelectric thin films. This work presents the controlled observation of nanoscale piezoelectric voltage and current generation, allowing accurate quantification and mapping of force function variations. We characterize both continuous thin films and lithographically patterned nanoislands with constrained interaction area. The influence of size on energy generation parameters is reported,...[Show more]
