The BaTi2O5–Ba6Ti17O40 eutectic (BaO–68.7 mol% TiO2) was directionally solidified by the floating zone (FZ) method and crystalline phases, microstructures and orientation were investigated. Ba6Ti17O40 with faceted rod-like shape was dispersed in the BaTi2O5 matrix. The growth directions of BaTi2O5 and Ba6Ti17O40 were parallel to the b and a axis, respectively, and the orientation relations were BaTi2O5 (010)//Ba6Ti17O40 (602̅) and BaTi2O5 (001)//Ba6Ti17O40 (001).
