    • Computational modeling and rational design of flexoelectric metamaterials and devices 

      Mocci, Alice (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-07-22)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Piezoelectricity, the two-way coupling between electric polarization and strain is the basic mechanism behind most electromechanical transduction technologies. It is possible only in a limited number of materials, namely ...
    • Geometrically polarized architected dielectrics with apparent piezoelectricity 

      Mocci, Alice; Barceló Mercader, Jordi; Codony Gisbert, David; Arias Vicente, Irene (2021-12)
      Article
      Open Access
      Through the suitable geometry of a repeating unit, a metamaterial can exhibit a property not present in the base material. Here, we propose a class of low area-fraction, bending-dominated metamaterials that exhibit apparent ...
    • Mathematical and computational modeling of flexoelectricity 

      Codony Gisbert, David; Mocci, Alice; Barceló Mercader, Jordi; Arias Vicente, Irene (2021-12-21)
      Article
      Open Access
      We first revisit the mathematical modeling of the flexoelectric effect in the context of continuum mechanics at infinitesimal deformations. We establish and clarify the relation between the different formulations, point ...
