Piezoelectricity is the electric charge that accumulates in certain solid materials such as crystals certain ceramics and biological matter such as bone dna and various proteins in response to applied mechanical stress the word piezoelectricity means electricity resulting from pressure and latent heat.
Piezoelectricity a polarization of charge produced by an applied stress occurs in many minerals. This effect is exploited in a variety of practical devices such as microphones phonograph. It is particularly strong in quartz.
This is the first time a biological material has been used to make piezoelectricity. It is derived from the greek word πιέζειν. Examples of these materials are ceramics also called piezoceramics and crystals when force is applied to such materials a voltage is generated.
