Templated grain growth (TGG) which enables the fabrication of textured ceramics with single crystal-like properties was discussed. In TGG, nucleation and growth of the desired crystal on aligned single crystal template particles results in an increased fraction of oriented material with heating. To facilitate alignment during forming, template particles must be anisometric in shape. Means to further improve the quality of texture and thus properties of textured piezoelectric ceramics by TGG were presented.
