Explanation: Researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology-Madras (IIT-M), located in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, partnered with the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) scientists to develop cutting-edge Piezoelectric MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) technology sensor for underwater communications, which will be advantageous to defence applications, especially in the Navy. This sensor will be used by the Indian Navy’s Next Generation SONAR initiative by DRDO to support both innovative and modern technological advances.

  • Piezoelectric MEMS technology sensor allows India to fabricate the devices at a lower cost than the foundries that are available internationally, where production costs are high and the availability of foundries is restricted.
  • With the development of Piezo MEMS technology, India is able to expand beyond the limits of defence capabilities and undertake strategic operations for key applications.
  • “Piezoelectric MEMS technology” is required to produce high-performance thin films and turn “piezo thin film” into sophisticated, futuristic naval sensors and apparatus for underwater applications.
  • The piezo thin films are one of the essential parts of piezo MEMS devices and are considered for acoustics and vibration-sensing applications.
  • IIT Madras researchers and DRDO scientists collaborated with many partners to develop a piezo MEMS process technology to make “Thin film membrane based Piezo MEMS Acoustic sensors.”
  • The fabricated PZT thin film-based acoustic sensor outperforms the traditional PVDF-based acoustic sensor in terms of functionality.
  • Lead-Zirconium-Titanium oxide (PZT) is a piezoelectric ceramic with high piezoelectric constants often used as sensors and actuators.
