• A high voltage piezoelectric transformer for active interrogation 

    Benwell, Andrew L., 1980- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    A resonant piezoelectric transformer circuit was developed for high voltage generation. The goal of this project was to produce 100 kV with a reasonably sized piezoelectric crystal. Several mechanisms leading to less than ...
  • Investigation and characterization of a high energy piezoelectric pulse 

    Pinkston, Caroline Susan (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2005)
    This research investigates and characterizes a high energy piezoelectric pulse generator (PPG) constructed from commercially available piezoelectric materials. The high energy PPG converts mechanical energy into electrical ...
