In the case of a piezoelectric semiconductor, the presence of conduction mechanisms results in the introduction of a time constant that produces a dispersion in some of the parameters.
According to one of the characteristic designations in this regard: "Life is an electron-photon-phonon diffraction grating, which vibrates in the medium of a piezoelectric protein semiconductor, and which is powered by chemical energy of metabolic processes." (14) The organism on the other hand "Is a protein system of piezoelectric semiconductors having chemical and electronic functions coupled with a wave-type internal coordination, surrounded by an electromagnetic wave, which is externally emitted." (14) The biosphere, by the same token, is a system of organisms as oscillators interacting electromagnetically.
