Abstract
We describe the potential of using piezoelectric Lead ZirconateTitanate (PZT) nanorods for imaging of oil reserves. The long axis of PZT nanorods can be made to align in the direction of flow in oil fields. If polarized along a specific axis, the seismic excitation of these nanorods would lead to the generation of electromagnetic signal which can be detected at large distances. The intensity, polarization, timing and direction of this signal would reveal information about flow patterns and distribution of oil in the reservoir. In order to synthesize anisotropic PZT nanoparticles, we have used a hydrothermal method. We were able to synthesize particles of various shapes by tuning the reaction conditions. The reaction conditions were optimized to grow well separated PZT nanorods on surfaces. The next step is to polarize the nanorods and functionalize one end with a polymer which would enable us to keep all polarizations point in one direction during flow induced alignment
