Transparency discovered in crystals with ultrahigh piezoelectricity

Use of an AC rather than a DC electric field can improve the piezoelectric response of a crystal. Now, an international team of researchers say that cycles of AC fields also make the internal crystal domains in some materials bigger and the crystal transparent. The research was undertaken using world-class equipment housed within the X-ray Diffraction Research Technology Platform based in the University of Warwick’s Department of Physics.
