Single-crystal layers of 0.65Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3·0.35PbTiO 3 (PMN-35PT) were grown heteroepitaxially on {001}-BaTiO3 template crystals. A {001}-BaTiO3 crystal was embedded in a fine-grained matrix of PMN-35PT containing excess PbO and heated between 950° and 1150°C for 0-5 h. The initial growth of the PMN-35PT on the {001} surface and the growth of the matrix grains both displayed a t1/3 dependence which is characteristic of diffusion-controlled growth. Growth was limited to ∼100-150 μm due to the significantly reduced driving force at longer times because of matrix coarsening and porosity evolution.
