In 1880, while performing experiments with tourmaline, quartz, topaz, cane sugar and Rochelle salt crystals, Pierre and Jacques Curie discovered that when mechanical stress was applied to a crystal, faint electric charges developed on the surface of that crystal. The prefix ‘piezo’ comes from the Greek piezein, which means to squeeze or press. As a result, piezoelectricity is electrical charge that is produced on certain materials when that material is subjected to an applied mechanical ...
