Texture Development in Na1/2Bi1/2TiO3-BaTiO3 Ceramics by Reactive-Templated Grain Growth
High <001>-textured Na1/2Bi1/2TiO3-BaTiO3 (6mol%BaTiO3) ceramics were fabricated by reactive-templated grain growth (RTGG), using plate-like Bi4Ti3O14 particles prepared by a molten salt method as the templates. The effect of template concentration on the texture development and microstructure evolution was studied, and the mechanisms of grain orientation and densification were also discussed. The design of Bi element reaction has important impact on the texture development.
