Hello,
I'm struggling to understand the exact conceptual difference between a flexo electric and peizo electric material. I mean, they seem more or less the same. could anyone please help me understand?

Here's a nice introduction.

Piezoelectricity usually refers to crystals (that don't "flex") where the polarity is most often along a single direction.

Flexoelectricity is somewhat broader and includes liquids in which the dipoles can also flip around.
