The elastic,piezoelectric, and dielectric constants of 0.58Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-0.42PbTiO30.58Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-0.42PbTiO3 (PMN-42%PT) were determined experimentally using combined resonance and ultrasonic methods. At room temperature the PMN-42%PT single crystal has tetragonal symmetry. The measured piezoelectric constantd33d33 is ∼260×10−12 C/N.∼260×10−12 C/N. The electromechanical coefficients k15,k15, k31,k31, k33,k33, and ktkt are 0.80, 0.39, 0.78, and 0.62, respectively. From the measured material constants the orientational dependence of phase velocities and electromechanical coupling coefficients was calculated. The results showed the tetragonal crystal exhibits isotropy in the X-YX-Y plane and k15,k15, k33,k33, and ktkt reach their maxima in .
