(solid-state physics)
The contraction or expansion of a piezoelectric crystal under the influence of an electric field, as in crystal headphones; also occurs at pn junctions in some semiconductor materials.

This generates the corresponding direct or inverse piezoelectric effect.
Indirect Piezoelectric Effect: The converse of the direct piezoelectric effect is known as the indirect or inverse piezoelectric effect.
It can also be defined as the strain and electrical field ratio in the case of inverse piezoelectric effect according to the following relationship:
