    Piezoelectric refers to an effect where the application of force to a material, results in the material producing an electric field. The reverse effect can also occur - an application of an electric field causes the material to deform physically. I believe that strictly speaking, this is more properly referred to as electrostriction.

    You may ask what has this got to do with prints? I have a vague recollection that some inkjets use the reverse piezoelectric effect to eject the ink on to the paper.

    I did a quick google search and came up with the following link that discusses piezoelectric effects:

    Where ever in the world they manufacture.

    Like it or not Kodak is the US of A's last
    domestic source of silver gelatined emulsions.
    Many have a very good opinion of what product
    they do still produce.

    Overall we will have to spend somewhat more OR
    ELSE we may end up with a whole lot less. I'm not
    going to chance it. Dan

    Giclée literally is the French for inkjet print, the term has become well accepted as shorthand for "digital print produced with high-quality materials which will offer good permanence, not with the cheapest inks and paper from your local office supplier which will fade if you look at them too hard")..

    It's not just ease -- it's basic availability of (what is rapidly becoming) obsolete technology.

    Humans are inherently artistic creatures and they will use whatever they can to produce the art that reflects their vision of the human condition.
