Dissemination of IT for the Promotion of Materials Science (DoITPoMS)



On completion of this TLP you should:

  • Understand the atomic basis for piezoelectricity.
  • Understand how this basis scales up to a full effect on the macro scale.
  • Understand how piezoelectrics tie in with ferroelectrics and how their properties arise from the same basis.
  • Understand how the properties of piezoelectrics are put to use both industrially and commercially.
