Theory of piezoelectricity, electrostriction, and pyroelectricity in molecular crystals

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    A microscopic theory is presented for piezoelectricity, electrostriction, and pyroelectricity in molecular crystals. The required coefficients are derived by combining a theoretical treatment of the dependence of molecular dipole moments on molecular displacement and a generalized elastic theory for internal strain. © 2010 American Institute of Physics.
