In order to simulate the performance of electromechanical devices at elevated temperatures, full tensor properties of piezoelectric materials at high temperatures are needed. Such data are extremely difficult to get for relaxor-based single crystals because their properties are determined by domain structures, which are strongly geometry dependent. We report here the temperature dependence of full tensor material constants of c poled Mn-doped 0.24Pb(In1/2Nb1/2)O3-0.46Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-0.30PbTiO3 single crystals from 25 °C to 55 °C, which were determined by the resonant ultrasound spectroscopy. Because only one sample was used, high degree of self-consistency was achieved for the tensor constants at all measured temperatures.
