  • Piezoelectricism Case Study

    primary test showing of an association between naturally visible piezoelectric marvels and crystallographic structure was distributed in 1880 by Pierre and Jacques Curie. Their analysis comprised of a decisive estimation of surface charges showing up on extraordinarily arranged precious stones (tourmaline, quartz, topaz, natural sweetener and Rochelle salt among them) which were subjected to mechanical anxiety. These outcomes were a sound representative for the Curies ' creative ability and persistence, considering that they were gotten with simply tinfoil, paste, wire, magnets and a crystal specialist 's saw. In the investigative circles of the day, this impact was considered a significant "revelation," and was immediately named as "piezoelectricity"…

  • Piezoelectricity History

    Piezoelectricity was discovered in1880 by Pierre and Jacques Curie, However the term piezoelectricity was coined by W.G. Henkel in 1881.G.Lippman discovered reverse process that is to say on application of electric field mechanical stresses could be developed in 1880 .Which was experimentally proven by curie brothers in 1881. Piezoelectric materials can be natural or synthetic. Natural occurring crystals include quartz, topaz, silk, wood etc. While as synthetic are quartz like, ceramic polymers…

  • Anaesthesia Effect

    In order to assess if the full effect of anaesthesia has taken effect, the rat’s pedal reflex will be tested. Essentially, after a given period of time (approximately 5-10 minutes) after administration of anesthesia, the foot of the rat will be pinched. If the animal flinches or responds with a sudden jerk, the anesthesia has not fully taken effect and additional time or dosage is required to put the animal under. If there is no response, the animal is ready for surgery. Approximately 3-5 rats…

  • Piezo Effect Essay

    The history of piezoelectricity evolution is over 120 years which was discovered by brothers Curie in 1880. They were Pierre Curie (1859-1906) and Jacques Curie (1855-1941). During the study of the generation surface electrical charge by applying pressure on some material, they found out an unusual phenomenon which was a voltage of opposite polarity was generated by pressure was applied on the crystalline minerals such as quartz. The amplitude of the generated voltage was proportional to the…

  • Autistics: The Evolution Of Ultrasound Sound

    Ultrasound has been used for many years to help diagnosis. Ultrasound describes sound frequencies beyond the range of normal human hearing and 20 kilohertz. Ultrasound uses focused low-energy ultrasound waves to visualize the interior of the body in a noninvasive and painless way. Many people are to thanks for the evolution of ultrasound. Dating back to the 1700’s. Lazzaro Spallanzani in 1793 observed that bats function efficiently in the dark, even when blinded, but not if deafened. He…

  • Earthshaker Myth

    Many geophysicists differ on the extent to which they think that individual reports of unusual lighting near the time and epicenter of an earthquake actually represent EQL. However the most agree that the phenomenon of EQL is real. After the initial proof of existence of Earthquake lights scientist had to spend a lot of time sorting through many different contradicting testimonies. Subsequently, scientists have created many theories for the origin of the lights, involving numerous examples from…

  • What Is Nanoelectromechanical Systems (NEMS?

    The displacement caused due to bending can be measured with the change in capacitance, piezoresistivity, piezoelectricity and optical beam deflections. Hence the state of the cell, whether malignant or benign, can be determined by identifying the protein in the cell. Uric acid and dopamine can be detected by electrodes composed of Zinc Oxide nanowire on 3D graphene foam. Abnormal quantities of uric acid is a symptom of many diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and gout. Dopamine levels when low,…

  • COMSOL Mmnim: An Introduction To FEM Analysis Of MEMS

    interfaces are indeed the backbone of the module. These have predefined formulations for the capabilities used to solve the problem and design the 25 structure. These types of simulations are also frequently used to study the behavior of existing structures from microscopic bio structures to glaciers. Simulations in structural mechanics are used in a wide range of applications—from the micro scale in MEMS components to the geo-mechanics scale. 4.3.2 The Structural Mechanics Module…
