A series impedance method [Mason and Fair, Proc. IRE, 464 (1942); IEEE Standard on Piezoelectricity ANSI/IEEE Std 176-1987 (New York: The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engeneers, 1987)] is the most popular way for investigation of piezoelectric properties of crystals. The AC voltage generated by a vibrating crystal achieves its maximum if a frequency of an exciting signal applied to the sample is equal to a resonance frequency of the sample. In this article a very simple experimental setup for piezoelectric measurements was described. Usually measurements of resonance frequencies are made at a constant temperature, which makes an experiment long-lasting. The experimental setup described below allows performance of the experiment in slow-change temperature regime.
