The third generation of advanced relaxor-PT piezoelectric single crystals, Mn:PIN-PMN-PT (manganese doped Pb(In1/2Nb1/2)O 3-Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-PbTiO 3), has attracted broad attention for high power transducer applications due to their greatly reduced mechanical loss but well-maintained, extremely high electromechanical coupling coefficient. Small signal characterization of Mn:PIN-PMN-PT crystals have been extensively studied. However, systematic large signal tests of Mn:PIN-PMN-PT crystals were urgently needed for further assessing the properties for high power transducer operation. In this work, systematic large signal, quasistatic measurements have been conducted for Mn:PIN-PMN-PT crystals under variable prestress, temperature and electric field. Preliminarily optimized operation domains for high power transducer design have been revealed for [001]-poled crystals for achieving maximum acoustic power density with low hysteretic losses caused by nonlinearity and phase transitions. 2013 IEEE.
