Thus, electrical and mechanical changes are coupled, analogous to piezoelectricity .
Our observation confirms that prestin is indeed a motor protein based on piezoelectricity .
Electricity as a natural phenomenon shows up in many forms, including piezoelectricity , static electricity, atmospheric effects, and cosmic rays.
The motile mechanism of the outer hair cell is analogous to piezoelectricity in that it is based on direct electromechanical coupling, in which charge is transferred across the membrane.
During the week, floating tiles would generate energy through piezoelectricity , a 19 th-century technology that is used to power quartz watches.
Capacitive, piezo resistive, or piezoelectric sensors pick up these motion-triggered vibrations.
These substances are called piezomagnets, analogous to the terminology for piezoelectric crystals whose electrical conductivity changes when they are subjected to pressure.
The two lever pairs were both controllable by piezoelectrically driven manipulators, one of which could also be automatically driven by a computer.
A correcting element like a piezoelectrically driven mirror or an acousto-optic deflector steers the beam incident on the polygon to correct for the current facet error.
The similar techniques use periodic piezoelectrically induced deformation of one or two fluidic channels to the solution nebulizer.
