Using x-ray diffraction, infrared spectroscopy, and direct measurement of piezoelectricity, the phase transition behaviour and piezoelectric constant of stretched and poled PVDF film was investigated. Results indicate that the poling time and grid voltage have no substantial influence on the phase transition behaviour of PVDF. However, they were found to have a significant effect on the piezoelectric charge constant of PVDF. %8 July/2013
