Triaxial Crystalline Orientation of MgTi2O5 Achieved Using a Strong Magnetic Field and Geometric Effect
Tailoring the crystallographic orientation in ceramics is very useful for improving their properties. We reported that the colloidal processing in a strong magnetic field was able to control the crystallographic orientation even in diamagnetic ceramics. In this process, a strong magnetic field is applied to the particles in a stable suspension. The orientation of the crystal depends on the axis having easy magnetization and one‐dimensional orientation can be controlled. In this study, our concept is that control of multiaxial crystalline orientation in ceramics by using both anisometric particles and a magnetic field. The control of the triaxial orientation was achieved by tape casting of rod‐like MgTi2O5 particle in a magnetic field. The b‐axis was aligned by the magnetic field, and the a‐axis was aligned by the geometric effect and shear stress during tape casting.
