Piezoelectricity is the conversion of mechanical energy into electricity which was discovered by Jacques and Pierre Curie in 1880. The principle of piezoelectricity nowadays is commonly applied in things such as voice recognition software, microphones, and etc. Scientists had been trying to improve piezoelectricity of materials, and for the first time, the piezoelectric effect in a molecule has been demonstrated by a team of researchers from the Czech Academy of Sciences and Palacký University Olomouc. In order for t. This demonstration begins a revolution in comprehending the electromechanical behavior of individual molecules, and subsequently provide a different approach in developing molecular motors, ultrasensitive biological sensors, and energy harvesting at the nanoscale.
