Title: Piezoelectric element and electronic component including same

Abstract: A piezoelectric element vibrating in a longitudinal vibration mode includes external electrodes which are provided on front and back major surfaces of a piezoelectric substrate. Conductive sections are fixed onto nodal portions of the piezoelectric element on one of the major surfaces of the piezoelectric substrate. The piezoelectric element is constructed such that a relationship T1/T is set at about 0.5 or less and a relationship L1/L is set at about 0.2 or less, where a thickness and a length of the piezoelectric element are T and L, respectively, and a thickness and a length of the support sections are T1 and L1, respectively.
