Brief Communications


The pyroelectric effect has been detected in polarized PVC, and the temperature dependence of the pyroelectric constant p has been measured. The latter proved to be constant and equal to 0.1 cgse/deg·cm2 at −130 to +30° C. The data show that p is proportional to the piezoelectric modulus d, with the proportionality factor k=3 · 106 at room temperature. As the temperature falls, k decreases.
