  • The piezoelectricity observed in poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) and its copolymers involves three components that are associated with the presence of at least two phases (crystalline and amorphous) in the polymer structure. The main contributions to the phenomenon observed are made by the size effect and electrostriction, which are related to each other. These contributions manifest themselves through the mechanism of strain-induced reversible transformations of a number of domains of the… CONTINUE READING
