The elastic impact excitation of dielectric materials leads to an ac electromagnetic field that is a superposition of the following several fields: the field appearing when a striker approaches a surface with an excess surface charge, a field induced by electrification processes when a striker is in contact with a material surface, the field created by a shift in the acoustic wave of charges at internal inhomogeneities, the field appearing upon acoustic surface-charge oscillations, and the field that is induced in piezoactive heterogeneous materials by the piezoelectric effect.
