Microcracking in Piezoelectrics Weakens the Electromechanical Coupling and Changes Its Directionality

Abstract Microcracking in piezoelectrics is found to produce two major effects on the effective piezoelectric properties: it weakens the electromechanical coupling and it changes its "directionality", i.e. the direction of mechanical (electrical) response to the applied electrical (mechani...
