  • Publication number: 20200303619
    Abstract: The present invention addresses the problem of providing a bimorph-type piezoelectric film that is less susceptible to the influence of pyroelectric noise resulting from temperature changes, and that makes it possible to provide a pressure-sensitive sensor or the like. The present invention provides a bimorph-type piezoelectric film comprising a first pyroelectric film having piezoelectric anisotropy in an in-plane direction, and a second pyroelectric film having piezoelectric anisotropy in an in-plane direction, the first pyroelectric film and the second pyroelectric film being disposed in such a manner that their surfaces on which electric charges of the same polarity are generated by a temperature increase are each outward-facing.
