Their topologies are mainly focused on the phase-switching technique [7,8] and the injection-locked oscillator [9-11].
The ceramics suitable for large-displacement actuator applications can be classified into three groups: piezoelectric, electrostrictive, and phase-switching (antiferroelectric to ferroelectric) materials.
In the phase-switching systems, materials transform from a macroscopically nonpolar state to a polar state as a result of an antiferroelectric-to-ferroelectric phase transition.
