Piezoelectricity is manifested in ferroelectric ceramics by inducing a preferred volume fraction of one ferroelectric domain variant orientation at the expense of degenerate orientations. The piezoelectric effect is therefore largely controlled by the effectiveness of the electrical poling in producing a bias in ferroelectric (1801) and ferroelastic (non-1801) domain orientations. Further enhancement of the piezoelectric effect in bulk ceramics can be accomplished by inducing preferred orientation through grain-orientation processes such as hot forging or tape casting that precede the electrical-poling process. Coupled crystal orientation and domain orientation processing yields ceramics with an even greater piezoelectric response. In this paper, preferred orientations of domains and grains in polycrystalline piezoelectric ceramics generated through both domain- and grain-orientation processing are characterized through pole figures and orientation distribution functions obtained using data from a variety of diffraction techniques. The processing methods used to produce these materials and the methods used to evaluate preferred orientation and texture are described and discussed in the context of prior research. Different sample and crystal symmetries are explored across a range of commercial and laboratory-prepared materials. Some of the variables presented in this work include the effects of in situ thermal depoling and the detailed processing parameters used in tape casting of materials with preferred crystallite orientations. Preferred orientation is also correlated with anisotropic properties, demonstrating a clear influence of both grain and domain orientations on piezoelectricity.

I. Introduction
MATERIAL with a crystallographic texture is best described as a polycrystal with a nonrandom distribution of crystal orientations or a preferred crystallographic orientation. This is unique from a polycrystal with a morphological texture, or preferred grain shape orientation, although they are frequently correlated. Because most crystalline properties are a function of crystallographic direction (anisotropic), the distribution of crystals and the intrinsic crystalline anisotropy is coupled to the macroscopic anisotropy of textured polycrystalline materials. This is illustrated in Fig. 1. Fundamental to these texture–anisotropy relationships is the requirement of a quantitative description of the orientation of crystals. Preferred orientation is most completely described by an orientation distribution function (ODF), which gives the relative presence of each possible crystal orientation relative to that in a random distribution of orientations. Panel A describes this further. Researchers in the metallurgy and geology communities produced the first publications on crystallographic textures tied to directional deformation in the first half of the 20th century.5,6 The Laue diffraction experiments by Wever5 tied forming to the subsequent concentration of orientations in polycrystal aluminum and iron through the first use of X-rays to describe the development of preferred orientations. Because these first examples of crystallographic texture arose from large-scale plasticity in ductile metals, quantitative measures of texture development in polycrystalline ceramics were at first limited and tied to textures arising from green body processing of materials with nonequiaxed particles (e.g., Pentecost and Wright7 and Bowman8) until hot working of ceramics was used to evaluate the orientation effects on the optical properties of aluminum oxide9,10 and the potential for improved performance in structural applications.11 The motivation in most engineering applications for inducing crystallographic texture is the desire to optimize a particular property, its anisotropy, or both.1 Crystallographic texture may be correlated or uncorrelated with the directional morphology of crystals or defects that may otherwise result from the directionality of processing. In the last two decades, research on crystallographic texture in ceramics related to high-temperature forming operations has been broadened to include a wide range of processes for introducing texture, including templating

The earliest process used to induce a crystallographic texture in bismuth titanate ceramics was hot forging. This strong mechanical influence persists through repeated thermal cycling and thermal depoling at temperatures approaching the Curie temperatures. this behavior is attributed to a reduced domain wall mobility resulting from doping that is internally strengthened with increasing temperature.3 soft PZT.

Acicular.5Ti4O15 obtained without the use of templates and initially untextured. the viscosities at casting are estimated to be: 6. Vol. Two methods were used to measure domain textures from poled lead metaniobate using diffraction techniques: comparison of (hk0)-type peaks using synchrotron X-ray diffraction data and pole figure inversion methods using neutron diffraction data and the Rietveld method.

the maximum 150 pole density value is parallel to the poling direction (a 5 01) with decreasing values at higher angles to the poling direction. During casting. all of the laminates develop a maximum 010 texture parallel to the ND and a minimum 010 texture parallel to the TCD. Differences between absolute values can be attributed to differences between the penetration depth and sample volume examined during diffraction. Therefore. 16 correlate with these predictions: a 001-type preferred orientation parallel to the TCD and a 010-type preferred orientation parallel to the ND. 15. With greater particle orientation before firing. the degree of preferred orientation is dependent on other factors as described in Panel C. continuous and provides an interpolation between measured directions. Increasing the slurry viscosity (Fig. Because peaks of pure (h00) or (0k0) are either low in intensity or overlapped by other peaks in this structure.August 2007 Texture and Anisotropy of Polycrystalline Piezoelectrics Synchrotron X-ray diffraction Neutron diffraction Saturation 2309 3. However. resulting in increased preferred orientation in the TCD and ND. 9(b). [100] and [010]. The (150) and (510) were chosen because there is a relatively shallow angle (B111) between these crystal poles and the respective crystal axes. where hak. Increasing the casting velocity (Figs. any set of peaks with consistent c components and varying a and b components can be used for quantifying domain textures. slurry deformation was determined to be dominated by sheardriven forces. the templates are subject to shear forces that rotate the particles and align them within the tape-casting plane. This behavior inverts in the 001 pole figures with maxima in the TCD and minima in the ND. Such an interpolation is commonly used as a filter for experimental noise in measured intensities. One method involves domain orientation measurements at discrete sample orientations using X-ray diffraction in reflection geometry and a calculation of domain orientations based on relative peak intensity changes. The solid line labeled saturation indicates the theoretical saturation distribution from Jones et al.5 f150 [mrd] 2. 16(b) vs. Accounting for the casting geometry and slurry viscosity. The pole figures are recalculated from the ODF and are reproduced in Fig. which demonstrates a distinct elongated rectangular shape. 5).5 0. Figure 15 shows a micrograph of these particles. The increase in 0k0-type texture quantified in all methods is attributed to an increase in the volume fraction of domains oriented such that the angle between the polarization direction and the electric field is minimized. As illustrated in Fig. The long axis of the particles is parallel to the [001] crystallographic direction and the [100] and [010] directions are parallel to the short particle direction.5 1. Seed particles are used to fabricate textured ceramics. 14. The long axis of these particles is parallel to the crystallographic [001]. With the long axis of the particles parallel to the crystallographic [001]. These particles act as templates for anisotropic grain growth in the fired ceramic. 9(b)). Domain density distributions calculated using the synchrotron diffraction data are discrete because values are calculated from intensity measurements in discrete sample directions. In addition to the template concentration. whereas pole figures obtained from an ODF are continuous because the ODF is represented as a continuous SH function (similar to that of Fig. with the crystallographic [100] and [010] parallel to the shorter particle dimensions. general 001-type textures are expected to develop parallel to the TCD. the shear behavior of the slurry acts to align these particles within the tape-casting plane (Fig. the use of direct peak intensity comparisons is limited to those of (hk0) type. the amount of particle orientation should also be increased. The second method involves pole figure inversion methods using neutron diffraction data and a representation of the ODF using a series expansion of spherical harmonics. There is more scatter in the discrete data because each value is calculated individually. These particles were added to two slurries of different viscosity formulated after Galassi et al. Particle rotation and orientation is dependent on the amount of shear-driven forces. The pole density distributions generated by the two methods exhibit a difference in their absolute values and a difference in scatter.89 This means that the inclusion of even small amounts of seed particles should result in the development of preferred orientation. alignment of the ‘‘square-beam’’ template particles in the tape-casting plane results in the development of [001]-type preferred orientation in the TCD and [100] and [010] preferred orientations in the normal and transverse directions. 150 pole density (f150) distributions of orthorhombic lead metaniobate.

These directionally dependent piezoelectric coefficients correlate with the texture measurements in Fig. ~. the shear behavior of the slurry deformation is increased. For tetragonal ceramics. The spontaneous polarization direction in lead metaniobate is parallel to [010]. which is a value between the two coefficients when poled parallel to the TCD and ND. These distributions cannot be measured dip rectly using the methods described here. the piezoelectric response is dependent on the distribution of the 010 pole before electrical poling. followed by the TD. 8 Fig. d33 5 10 pC/N.

Because the polarization distribution function describes a statistical probability of the spontaneous polarization direction in every possible sample direction. the maximum value of fp is equal to the possible number of spontaneous polarization directions.
