We report on the observation of an orthorhombic ferroelectric phase in 0.67Pb(Mg[sub 1/3]Nb[sub 2/3])O[sub 3]-0.33PbTiO[sub 3] single crystals, whose polarization is along <011> direction and stability can be altered by poling conditions. We studied the piezoelectric properties on poled <011> crystals, in both monodomain and polydomain states, and found that the piezoelectric d[sub 32] coefficient, which is the piezoelectric response in perpendicular to the poling direction, is positive in both cases. Based on the phenomenological theory, we show that this is possible in a crystal with the electrostrictive coefficients Q[sub 11]>Q[sub 44]-Q[sub 12]. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
