Definitions for "Piezoelectric"
A material capable of transducing mechanical output to electrical signals or, alternatively, electrical signals to mechanical output. Piezoelectric devices are used in microsystems.
Becoming electrically polarised when subject to the mechanical stress; quartz for example produces an electric charge when squeezed.
A material that generates an electric charge when mechanically deformed. Conversely, when an external electric field is applied to piezoelectric materials they mechanically deform.
