14 p, 1.0 MB Flexoelectricity in bones / Vasquez-Sancho, Fabián (Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia) ; Abdollahi, Amir (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Laboratori de Càlcul Numèric) ; Damjanovic, Dragan (Ecole Politechnique Federale de Lausanne) ; Catalan, Gustau (Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia)
Bones generate electricity under pressure, and this electromechanical behavior is thought to be essential for bone's self-repair and remodeling properties. The origin of this response is attributed to the piezoelectricity of collagen, which is the main structural protein of bones. [...]

129 p, 3.7 MB Flexoelectricity in biomaterials / Vásquez Sancho, Fabián, autor. ; Catalan Bernabé, Gustau, supervisor acadèmic. ; Sort Viñas, Jordi, supervisor acadèmic. ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Física. ; Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia.
La flexoelectricidad es la capacidad de los materiales para generar electricidad al deformarse de forma no homogénea. Es una propiedad de todos los materiales y, en principio, posible que existiera en biomateriales. [...]
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.
