The (1 − y) ((1 − x)Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3xPbTiO3)–yPbSnO3 solid solution (PMN–PT–PS) was obtained and investigated in the present paper. For the analysis of the influence of the PbSnO3 component on the electrophysical parameters, the compositions from the rhombohedral phase, tetragonal phase, and a mixture of these phases were selected. The six compositions of the PMN–PT have been obtained using sol–gel methods (for values of x equal to 0.25, 0.28, 0.31, 0.34, 0.37, and 0.40). The ceramic samples of the 0.9(PMN–PT)–0.1(PS) solid solution have been obtained using the conventional ceramic route. X-ray diffraction (XRD), energy dispersive spectrometry (EDS), and microstructure measurements were performed, as well as tests regarding the dielectric, ferroelectric, piezoelectric properties and electric conductivity of the PMN–PT–PS ceramic samples versus temperature. Results of the measurements show that the obtained PMN–PT–PS materials have good electrophysical properties and are well suited for use in micromechatronic and microelectronic applications.
