Temperature dependences of the linear permittivity ε' and coefficient of the third harmonic generation γ3 were studied for the nanocomposite produced by embedding the LiCsSO4 ferroelastic into porous alumina with a pore size of 100 nm compared to the bulk counterpart. The thermal hysteresis was found for the non-linear coefficient γ3 in the nanocomposite at the ferroelastic phase transition. The phase transition temperature in the nanocomposite increased by 15 K upon warming. The results observed were ascribed to mechanical stresses in confined LiCsSO4 nanorodes.
