piezoceramic

[pē¦ā·zō·sə′ram·ik]
(materials)
A ceramic, such as lead zirconate titanate, that converts an electrical field to a mechanical strain or a mechanical strain to an electrical charge. In smart structures, piezoceramics are used as sensors, actuators, or both, for vibration suppression applications. Also known as piezoelectric ceramic.
