Brief Introduction to the Piezoelectric Effect

  • Eleonora I. Parkhomenko
Part of the Monographs in Geoscience book series (MOGEO)


The piezoelectric effect is a characteristic exhibited by certain minerals (particularly dielectrics, but rarely, semiconductors), represented by an electrical polarization as the consequence of an applied mechanical force. It will be to our advantage to consider some aspects of electrical polarization in dielectrics before examining piezoelectric phenomena.
