Mechanical engineers develop process to 3-D print piezoelectric materials

from Virginia Tech via Phys.org

The piezoelectric materials that inhabit everything from our cell phones to musical greeting cards may be getting an upgrade thanks to work discussed in the journal Nature Materials released online recently. Xiaoyu 'Rayne' Zheng, assistant professor of mechanical engineering in the College of Engineering, and a member of the Macromolecules Innovation Institute, and his team have developed methods to 3-D print piezoelectric materials that can be custom-designed to convert movement, impact and stress from any directions to electrical energy. more
