Recently, fairly large numbers of studies have been reported on piezoelectric relaxations of polymers. The piezoelectric constants of polymer and ferroelectric composites also show such relaxations. It has been found that both polymer and polymer and ferroelectric composities exhibit typical Debye-type piezoelectric dispersion. Cole-Cole diagrams for the piezoelectric properties of these materials have been drawn and an attempt has been made to interpret the results.
