Abstract:

In analytical treatments of piezoelectric-acoustic transducers, signal processors, and resonators, the electrochemical transduction mechanism is most often expressed in terms of the elements of the piezoelectric e or d matrices. Molecular interpretations of piezoelectricity, and especially electrooptical applications, usually involve polarization as the preferred variable, and consequently the alternative a and b matrices are of interest. The elements of these latter sets are calculated for lithium tetraborate from measured elastopiezodielectric constants taken from the literature. Keywords Piezoelectric resonators Piezoelectric transducers Lithium tetraborate Acousto-optics Formula mathematics.
