Flexoelectricity in biomaterials

Abstract:

Flexoelectricity is the ability of materials to generate electricity upon being bent, or, more generally, upon being inhomogeneously deformed. It is a property that is allowed by symmetry in all materials and, therefore, it was in principle possible that it existed in biomaterials –one precedent existed for their observation in inner-ear stereocilia, in fact, pointing to its importance for acousto-electric transduction in mammalian hearing.

In this context, this thesis investigates into the flexoelectrical properties of several biologically-produced ceramic composites, ranging from bones to coral, putting emphasis not only on measuring the flexoelectrical properties, but also in connecting them to their potential physiological role
