Li3xLa2/3−xTiO3 (LLT) single crystals with different Li compositions (x = 0.042–0.120) were grown by the traveling solvent floating zone (TSFZ) method. Because this material exhibits incongruent melting behavior, solvent of La2Ti2O7-poor composition rather than Li-rich LLT composition for a LLT feed was used. Crack- and inclusion-free single crysta...
