Modulation of mechanical interactions by local piezoelectric effects

Abstract:

Piezoelectricity is a well-established property of biological materials, yet its functional role has remained unclear. Here, we demonstrate a mechanical effect of piezoelectric domains resulting from collagen fibril organisation, and describe its role in tissue function and application to material design. Using a combination of scanning probe and nonlinear optical microscopy, we observed a hierarchical structuring of piezoelectric domains in collagen-rich tissues, and explored their mechanica...
