Field-Assisted Isothermal Oriented Crystallization of SrO-TiO2-SiO2 Polar Glass-Ceramics
The polar glass-ceramics of 2.0SrO-1.0TiO2-2.9SiO2 system were prepared by the process of recrystallization with additional applied isothermal and electric field. The results showed that the glass-ceramics piezoelectric constant d33 was 12×10-12 C/N. The study of its oriented crystallization by SEM and XRD indicated that Sr2TiSi2O8 crystal performed oriented growth, which was perpendicular to the glass surface and made it be orientally crystallized with the assisted the isothermal and electric field. The further experimental results showed that the additional electric field reduced the crystallization activation energy, which provided a force for the isothermal orientating crystallization process.
