Brief Research Summary: 


My main research aims to understand the enhanced piezoelectric behavior for textured piezoelectric ceramics, including preparation and characterization of textured piezoelectric ceramics using tape-casting technique. Currently, I am focusing on high power textured piezoelectric ceramics, which will be able to work in high vibration velocity with high sensitivity. In the future, piezo devices using the high power textured piezoelectric ceramics will be prepared to investigate its potential applications.
