Dramatic changes are seen in the polarization vs. electric field hysteresis loops recorded from Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3− PbTiO3 PMN–PT piezoelectric single crystals under uniaxial as well as radial compressive pre-stresses. The results demonstrate a general and effective approach to overcome the drawback of low coercive fields in these relaxor-based ferroelectric crystals, which could help facilitate widespread implementation of these piezocrystals in engineering devices.
