The électrostriction of Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)03-based ceramics is strongly affected in both magnitude and hysteresis by their preparation history. This paper describes the factors determining the electrostrictive response, putting emphasis on the grain size dependence. The electrostrictive strain and the hysteresis decrease mainly with decreasing maximum grain size, even if the average grain size is maintained nearly constant.
