Abstract : The purpose of this monograph is to provide a source of data on a wide variety of piezoelectric materials which will be useful to those conducting research in this area as well as to the engineer designing ultrasonic transducers, filters, and other piezoelectric devices. The numerical data are given in the rationalized MKS system in accordance with the IRE Standards on Piezoelectricity, as are the symbols employed. Table I defines the symbols employed and gives their MKS unit. Since a large amount of literature still uses the CGS system, Table II presents the factors to convert CGS units to MKS units. On the data pages, the digits in the data columns are to be multiplied by the power of ten in the column immediately to the right of the symbol to obtain the value in the MKS system. The compounds are arranged alphabetically by chemical name. The pure compounds are followed by the binary alloys, followed by ternary compounds, etc. The multiple component compounds are arranged alphabetically by main constituent, secondary constituent, etc., and by decreasing amount of main constituent.
