Mn modified rhombohedral Pb(In0.5Nb0.5)O 3-Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-PbTiO 3 (PIN-PMN-PT:Mn) single crystals poled along C crystallographic direction exhibit a "2R" engineered domain configuration, with macroscopic mm2 symmetry. The complete sets of material constants were determined using combined resonance and ultrasonic methods, and compared to C poled PIN-PMN-PT:Mn crystals. The thickness shear piezoelectric coefficient d15 and electromechanical coupling factor k15 were found to be on the order of ∼3000 pC/N and 0.92, respectively, with longitudinal piezoelectric coefficient d33 and coupling factor k33 being on the order of ∼1050 pC/N and 0.90. Of particular importance is that PIN-PMN-PT:Mn single crystals exhibited high mechanical quality factor Q33 ∼ 1000, comparable to "hard" PZT8 ceramics, which can also be confirmed by the low extrinsic contribution, being ≤2% from the Rayleigh analysis.
