The piezoelectric transformer is made from a ceramic material with a high dielectric constant. It is composed of equal sized elements with different polarization. Element A has a standing wave at f/2. Element B is coupled mechanically and it has a standing wave at nX f/2.

The mechanical energy is stored in the two elements. Boost up or down conversion is possible at very high efficiency levels.

The main application for this piezo element combination is energy transformation but it also functions as a boosting element with bandpass characteristics of second order for low-noise chopper circuits. The piezoelectric transformer vibrates at a resonant frequency determined by the element length. The operating frequency F is subject to the velocity of sound c and the length L.   F = c/4L with resonance at f/2. The relation between vibration of the piezo ceramic and stress is shown in the diagram. Zero displacement point is the center of the element.
