The fibrils exhibited shear piezoelectric behavior similar to that previously reported in collagen type I fibrils and followed the same cantilever-fibril angle dependence present for type I. A uniform polarization directed from the amine to carboxyl termini, as seen for collagen type I, was observed in all type II fibrils studied. The shear piezoelectric coefficient, d 15, however, for type II was roughly 28–32% of the value measured for type I fibrils. Possible explanations for the reduced piezoelectric coefficient of type II collagen are provided.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||American Institute of Physics||Copyright (published version):||2014 AIP Publishing LLC||Keywords:||Piezoelectric materials;Piezoresponse force microscopy||DOI:||10.1063/1.4891400||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
