Rhombohedral single crystals are fabricated using the cost-effective solid-state single crystal growth (SSCG) method; their dielectric and piezoelectric properties are also characterized. Measurements show that (001) single crystals have an electromechanical coupling factor () higher than 0.85, piezoelectric charge constant () of about 950 [pC/N], and piezoelectric voltage constant () higher than 40 []. Especially the of (001) single crystals was by about six times higher than that of their ceramics. Because their electromechanical coupling factor () and piezoelectric voltage constant (, ) are higher than those of soft PZT ceramics, it is expected that rhombohedral (001) single crystals can be used as "lead-free" piezoelectric materials in many piezoelectric applications such as actuator, sensor, and transducer.
