Multidomain relaxor-based single crystals have intrigued the enthusiasm of many researchers due to their superior electromechanical properties. In order to understand the physical origin of multidomain properties, one must know the complete set of material coefficients in single domain state. Previous published single domain data were all measured under bias because single domain state is unstable. Here, we report a set of single domain data without bias for rhombohedral 0.24Pb(In1/2Nb1/2)O3-0. 49Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-0.27PbTiO3 single crystal. Comparing rotated coefficients from single domain data with measured multidomain material coefficients, we concluded that the orientation effects account for more than 90% of the observed multidomain properties.
