The study of pyroelectric response of monocrystalline TGS cubic specimens to changes of temperature induced by linear and pulse heating of three mutually perpendicular pairs of cube sides demonstrated a complicated structure of signals. We attribute their forms to the activation of various hydrogen bonds between glycine G1, G2, and G3 molecules. In the case of pulse heating the pyroelectric signal is observed also in the paraelectric phase.
