What is Piezoelectricity? Piezoelectricity, also called the piezoelectric effect, was discovered in 1880 by two French brothers. They found that putting pressure on materials like quartz and Rochelle salts created electricity. Today, we know that piezoelectricity is the electricity produced by certain materials as a result of being put under mechanical stress and/or vibration. All…
