1.1.5.3. Relation between the pyroelectric coefficients at constant stress and at constant strain

| top | pdf |

By combining relations (1.1.5.1)[link] and (1.1.5.2)[link], it is possible to obtain relations between the pyroelectric coefficients at constant stress, [p_{n}^{T}], and the pyroelectric coefficients at constant strain, [p_{n}^{S}], also called real pyroelectric coefficients, [p_{n}^{S}]. Let us put [T_{ij} = 0] and [E_{n} = 0] in the first equation of (1.1.5.1)[link]. For a given variation of temperature, [\delta\Theta], the observed strain is [S_{kl} = \Big[\alpha_{kl}\Big]^{E,T}\delta \Theta.]From the second equations of (1.1.5.1)[link] and (1.1.5.2)[link], it follows that [\eqalignno{D_n &= p_n^T \delta\Theta\cr D_n &= e_{nkl} S_{kl} + p_n\delta\Theta.\cr}]Substituting the expression [S_{kl}] and eliminating [D_n], it follows that [p_n^T = e_{nkl}\Bigl[\alpha_{kl}\Bigr]^{E,T}+ p_n^{S}. \eqno(1.1.5.3)]

This relation shows that part of the pyroelectric effect is actually due to the piezoelectric effect.
