Orientation Factor of Grain Oriented Bismuth Titanate Prepared in High Magnetic Field
This paper shows a very promising approach for developing the structure of grain orientation through weak magnetic interaction of ceramics particles in a high magnetic field. Grain oriented bismuth titanate ceramics was successfully developed through a processing in a high magnetic field. XRD and SEM show that c-axes of particles were oriented perpendicular to the applied magnetic field. The orientation structure developed by sintering, and the orientation factor achieved 0.85 as determined using the Lotgering method.
