1. The piezo electric effect

Please sign up for the course before starting the lesson.

The piezo – electric effect Piezo means pressure. This is a property of some crystalline materials which are either naturally occurring (quartz) or artificial(lead zirconate titanate) When compressed , these crystalline materials exhibit a potential difference between the compressed surfaces The actual change in thickness of a piezo – electric crystal is very small, of Read more about 1.
