We have grown shape-controlled langasite-type crystals by the micro-pulling-down (μ-PD) method. Columnar shaped La3Ta0.5Ga5.5O14 (LTG), Ca3NbGa3Si2O14 (CNGS), Ca3TaGa3Si2O14 (CTGS), Sr3NbGa3Si2O14 (SNGS), and Sr3TaGa3Si2O14 (STGS) crystals were grown using a Pt-Rh crucible with a 3-mm-diameter columnar die at the bottom. All grown crystals showed high transparency except for the peripheral area and diameter of approximately 3 mm. The chemical phases at the central parts of the grown crystals were identified as a single phase of langasite-type structure and their lattice parameters were almost the same as those of crystals grown by the Czochralski (Cz) method; however, some impurity phases were observed in the peripheral area. In X-ray rocking curve measurements, the grown crystals indicated equivalent crystallinity to the crystal grown by the Cz method. The piezoelectric constant d11 of the CNGS crystal was 3.98 pC/N; this value is well correlated with those of previous reports.
