Abstract : It is an object of the patent to provide a satisfactory method for producing single crystals of barium titanate of commercially usable size. To start the growing process, a single crystal or seed crystal, of barium titanate is completely incased in a shell of barium titanate powder of uniform small particle size to form a pellet having a thickness of about one-quarter of an inch. This pellet is formed by first embedding the single crystal in the barium titanate powder and then subjecting the completely embedded single crystal at room temperature, in a conventional cold pressing technique, to pressures of about 10,000 p.s.i.
