Textured Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-PbTiO3 Ceramics by Templated Grain Growth


Article Preview

Fiber textured 0.70PMN-0.30PT ceramics was fabricated using the Templated Grain Growth (TGG) process. Tabular SrTiO3 particles synthesized in molten NaCl-KCl salts were used as templates and oriented in fine 0.70PMN-0.30PT matrix during rolling. Tabular SrTiO3 particles can stabilize in sintering by SPS technique and annealing. A degree of [001] texture (Lotgering factor ~ 0.38) was obtained by heteroepitaxial growth of oriented single PMN-PT on the SrTiO3 template particles.
