Piezoelectrically induced displacements were measured by the laser interferometry method for multidomain-engineered 0.71 Pb(Mg1 / 3Nb2 / 3) O3-0.29 PbTiO3 single crystals in the temperature range 260 K-333 K. It was confirmed that this single crystal has large piezoelectric coefficients if the poling is done along the [001]-direction. Assuming an effective tetragonal symmetry, we determined the piezoelectric d31 coefficient by measuring the displacement on (100) and (110) crystal faces. Coefficient d31 = - 611 pC/N was calculated for the [100]-direction at room temperature. Its value is higher at 330 K (-820 pC/N). Piezoelectric coefficient d31 measured on a second sample in the [110]-direction exhibited a higher value than the previous one, about -808 pC/N at room temperature, -1180 pC/N at 331 K and -605 pC/N at 262 K. Temperature dependencies of piezoelectric coefficient d33 were also investigated. The second sample exhibits about 15% higher d33 than the first one -1598 pC/N and 1390 pC/N at RT. This difference is 50% -2355 pC/N and 1600 pC/N at 331 K.
