Optical properties of PLZT(8/70/30) in various phases were studied by using HAUP method. Ferroelectric phase was found to be optically, active. From this result, it was revealed that the point group of PLZT should be C3 in the rhombohedral system(ferroelectric phase). Peculiar electric field dependences of gyration and birefringence in the intermediate phase were found.
