Abstract

This paper is devoted to the problem of the electromechanical coupling of advanced composites based on relaxor-ferroelectric single crystals with large piezoelectric activity. A novel 0-3-0 PMN-0.33PT single crystal/porous araldite composite is considered as a material with large values of electromechanical coupling factors with a variable anisotropy. The role of physical and microstructural factors in achieving the considerable electromechanical coupling is discussed for 0-3-0 connectivity.
