Ceramics arising from Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)1‑x TixO3 with composition near the morphotropic phase boundary (MPB) were prepared by the modified solid-state reaction method. The synthesized ceramics were characterized, and then the operating principles of pyroelectric and piezoelectric harvesters are reviewed. In addition, the dielectric behavior is measured to determine the dielectric constant and losses at different temperatures and frequencies. The typical behavior of a ferroelectric relaxer was observed by adding the PbTiO3 phase. The thermal properties are also analyzed by PPE calorimetry, presaging a one-dimensional heat-flow process. As a result, the dielectric and thermal behaviors of the as-prepared ceramics as well as their thermal stability are intimately linked to the PbTiO3 addition to PbMgl/3Nb2/3O3 phase. These materials exhibit good physical performances, which makes them promising candidates for pyroelectric micro-generators (PEG), cooling systems and infrared applications.
