Demonstration of piezoelectricity Piezoelectricity, is an effect that occurs when mechanical stress is applied to certain materials. An electrical polarisation is set up in the crystal with the result that the faces become electrically charged. The charge reverses if the compression changes to tension. Because the effect is reversible an electric field applied across the material causes it to contract, or expand, according to the sign of the field
