Piezo Ceramics – Reason to the existence of piezoelectricity
The essential unit which is a rhomboid or cubic shaped cage made up of atoms exists in some atomic lattice structures. Inside the cell, the cage is responsible for holding single semi-mobile ion that has numerous quantum position states. By applying electric field or by distorting the cage (applied strain), the ions post state will consequently shift. The basis or transformation to internal electric field shifts from mechanical strain is provided by coupling between the cage and central ion.
