Applications of the Piezoelectric Effect - A Summary Piezoelectricity is a unique characteristic that could be seen in various materials like crystals ceramics and biological things like bones to produce an electric capacity or an electric field when a mechanical stress exists. In some materials the effect of piezoelectricity could be reversed. For example its impact on lead zirconate titanate crystals could be noticed that the changes in their own shape of around 0.1 percent. The piezoelectric effect has various uses including the detection as well as the production of sound. Learn more about it by looking at its application in computer infrastructure specifically in computer interfaces. The History of Piezoelectric Effect Piezoelectricity and its consequences on some substances were examined and conceptualized by Jacques and Pierre Curies at 1880. Even though this attribute was found in the 1800s the breakthrough just occurred in the first part of the 20th century when scientists researched its effects on cane sugar bone Rochelle salt topaz and quartz. In the late part of the century a few experts found that quartz has piezoelectric generator that could be implemented as standard of frequency. With this discovery computer specialists performed researches and found that neural effect is useful for producing clock pulse in computers. The Usage of Piezoelectricity in Solving Computer Problems That Are Connected to Overclocking The piezoelectric effect is quite helpful in overclocking picture cards in the computer interfaces of notebooks or laptops. For example some hardware and software manufacturers utilize piezoelectricity in their products so as to enable them to utilize in improving the performance of computer systems. In this regard there are times that when software is employed for overclocking graphic cards of laptops there will be a buzzing sound that may be heard. There is not anything to worry when this happens because the sound indicates that the process produces a piezoelectric effect.
