Self-healing in crystals and pizoelectricity

Piezoelectricity is the energy conversion observed in certain materials where mechanical stress can cause an accumulation of electric charge. The accumulated charge can assist in wound healing in living matters like soft tissue and bones. This has inspired an entire branch of material sciences dedicated to studying the intrinsic properties that enable ‘self-healing’ in both natural and synthetic materials. The…
