This book gives you an insight in the ubiquitous use of piezo technology. Through everyday examples we show you that often without realizing, you make use of piezo technology several times each day. This is what we call “the hidden use of piezo technology in applications all around us” Applied Piezo and its affiliated organisations are working on new piezo technology and applications everyday. With this book we hope to give you an insight in the contribution of our work on modern day society. We hope that you may benefit from our work and enjoy this book.
