Transparent Liquid Piezoelectric Material?

  1. Mar 22, 2013 #1
    Hi All,

    I'm wondering if anyone is aware of a piezoelectric material that is both liquid and is transparent/colorless/ lower refractive index?
    Is there database online where I could compare these values? Google has not been kind to me:(
    Any help would be so appreciated.

    piezoelectricity is a property of the lattice. in particular, it depends on symmetry properties of the unit cell. this is evident from the formula for piezoelectricity which involves stress, strains and other properties not seen in fluids.

    polymers may also exhibit this effect but they are still solids.

    Hi, by chance just a bit earlier today I found the following information that may give you some idea: http://www.kth.se/fakulteter/_TFY/kmf/lcd/lcd~1.htm [Broken]

    Best regards
