We report the presence of an intermediate ferroelectric orthorhombic FE o phase in oriented 0.92Pb(Zn 1/3 Nb 2/3 )O 3 -0.08PbTiO 3 single crystals. High field-long time poling was done in order to stabilize the inherent symmetry of the crystal. Pyroelectric and dielectric measurements were conducted on{001},{011}and{111}oriented crystals. Pyroelectric and dielectric peaks corresponding to a ferroelectric rhombohedral FE r to FE o phase transition was observed for{111}oriented piezocrystals at ~80C.
