Piezoelectric coefficient or Piezoelectric Modulus, aka D33, quantifies the volume change when a piezoelectric material is subject to an electric field, or the polarization on application of a stress: where P is polarization, and is the stress.

There are actually many Piezoelectric coefficients: Dxy.
