Unformatted text preview: ¡ Polarization is the amount of charge associated with the dipolar or free charge in a dielectric ¡ Pyroelectricity: when temperature increased, electric charges appear on the surface of the crystal (tourmaline the “Ceylon magnet,” 1703) ¡ Ferroelectrics: materials in which spontaneous polarization can be altered by electric field. ¡ Ferroelastics: materials in which mechanical stresses alter the spontaneous polarization. ¡ Piezoelectric: material in which application of stress generates electric charges on its surfaces; implies “direct piezoelectric effect” ¡ Electrostriction is a secondary coupling in which the strain is proportional to square of the electric field; frequently implies the “inverse piezoelectric effect.” ¡ Direct piezoelectric effect: convert mechanical energy into electrical (Pierre Currie in 1880) ¡ Inverse effect: convert electrical energy into mechanical (Lippman from thermodynamic principles; Currie experimentally in 1881) ¡ Electric field ¡ Dielectric displacement (flux) A q D = d V E = ¡ Electrostatic j ij i E D ε = ¡ Elastic kl ijkl ij S s σ = ¡ Constitutive equations ρ σ = − = i i i j ij D f , , i i i j j i ij E u u s , , , ) ( 2 1 φ − = + = ¡ Equilibrium ¡ Displacement s j ij jk ijk i k ijk kl E ijkl ij E s d D E d S s ε ε σ + = + = O Electro-mechanical coupling: stored mechanical energy input electrical energy stored electrical energy input mechanical energy = K 2 = ¡ Quartz: + great physical and chemical stability − small coupling coefficient ¡ applications: oscillators and resonators...
