We grew column-shaped Sr 3NbGa 3Si 2O 14 (SNGS) and Sr 3TaGa 3Si 2O 14 (STGS) langasite-type piezoelectric single crystals by the micro-pulling-down (μ-PD) method. 3-mm-diameter SNGS and STGS crystals were grown using a Pt-Rh crucible with a 3-mm-diameter columnar die. According to X-ray rocking curve measurements, the grown crystals had crystallinity equivalent to that of crystals grown by the Czochralski (Cz) method. The crystals were single-phase materials with langasite-type crystal structure. The lattice parameters of the grown crystals were almost consistent with those of crystals grown by the Cz method.
