The figure below shows the typical outline of the CSAP's
A positive voltage on one electrode leads to a relative displacement of this electrode towards the chamfered edge. This displacement is recorded as positive.

Based on the piezoelectric shear mode, Noliac's shear actuators can be made more compact and have higher resonant frequencies than conventional piezo actuators. In addition, their low capacitance results in reduced power requirements for a given generated displacement in dynamic operation.
Shear actuators are used in numerous applications within e.g. nanopositioning, precision mechanics, active vibration cancellation, semiconductor manufacturing and testing.
