Theory and Application of Piezoelectrics in Positioning

In 1880, Pierre and Jacques Curie discovered that when mechanical stress was applied to a crystal, faint electric charges developed on the surface of that crystal. As the prefix “piezo” comes from the Greek piezein, which means to squeeze or press, the term “direct piezoelectric effect” was coined to describe the electrical charge that is … Continue reading Theory and Application of Piezoelectrics in Positioning
