We recently reported a transfer process that provides large area PZT (Pb(Zr0.52,i0.48)0.98O3) thin films released from a high temperature growth substrate to few micron thick flexible polyimide substrates [1]. The released films have superior piezoelectric properties compared to as-grown films due to declamping from the rigid substrate. In this work, we demonstrate ultrasonic transducers fabricated using released PZT films.
