Definition of piezoelectricity in English:
Electric polarization in a substance (especially certain crystals) resulting from the application of mechanical stress.
- Electricity as a natural phenomenon shows up in many forms, including piezoelectricity, static electricity, atmospheric effects, and cosmic rays.
- During the week, floating tiles would generate energy through piezoelectricity, a 19 th-century technology that is used to power quartz watches.
- Thus, electrical and mechanical changes are coupled, analogous to piezoelectricity.
- Example sentences
- Significantly, they have piezoelectric and electrostatic polarization properties that could be of use in small-scale sensing and microsystem applications, perhaps in the medical field.
- The structures are actuated with electrostatic, piezoelectric, or electromagnetic forces.
- These substances are called piezomagnets, analogous to the terminology for piezoelectric crystals whose electrical conductivity changes when they are subjected to pressure.
- Example sentences
- A correcting element like a piezoelectrically driven mirror or an acousto-optic deflector steers the beam incident on the polygon to correct for the current facet error.
- The two lever pairs were both controllable by piezoelectrically driven manipulators, one of which could also be automatically driven by a computer.
- The similar techniques use periodic piezoelectrically induced deformation of one or two fluidic channels to the solution nebulizer.
