Mn-doped PIN-PMN-PT ceramics were 90% C textured by reactive templated grain growth (RTGG) with 5 vol% BaTiO3 microplatelets. Hardened properties such as high coercive field (EC) of 14 kV/cm, low dielectric loss (tan δ) of 0.37-0.66%, and high QM of 496 were obtained. Textured Mn-doped ceramics have TC of 219 °C, and a two times greater low-field d33* of 846 pm/V than random ceramics. Rayleigh analysis of textured PIN-PMN-PT ceramics shows that Mn-doping reduces the relative extrinsic contribution of the piezoelectric response to the strain behavior from 38% to 18% (at 4 kV/cm) by reducing irreversible domain wall motion. Mn-doping also reduced the overall strain response of PIN-PMN-PT, but crystallographic texturing increased the intrinsic piezoelectric response of the lattice as evidenced by the increase in d33 (Berlincourt) from 283 pC/N in random ceramics to 341 pC/N in textured ceramics. These results demonstrate that textured Mn-doped PIN-PMN-PT ceramics are excellent candidates for high-power transducer applications.
