    • Abstract


      Measurements of pyroelectric currents and coefficients of poled sintered discs of ferroelectric solid solutions, potassium-cesium vanadate and potassium-lithium vanadate have been investigated in the temperature range covering their transition points. In these solid solutions, KxCs1−xVO3 and KxLi1−xVO3, pronounced peaks have been observed at the ferroelectric curie temperatures. The peak values of pyroelectric currents and coefficients change with change in potassium concentration in both the solid solutions.
