The orientation dependence of the converse piezoelectric constants in epitaxial single domain piezoelectric films constrained by substrate is calculated. The calculations are supported by the experimental measuring results of longitudinal piezoelectric constants of ferroelectric tetragonal Pb(Zr0.2Ti0.8)O3 thin films with (001), (011), and (111) orientations.
