We have developed method for synthesis of single-grain two-phase BaTiO 3-(Mn0.5Zn0.5)Fe2O4 (BTO-MZF) nanomaterials, via solid state reaction. The morphologies of synthesized nanocomposites were found to be dependent on external substrate orientation and the concentration of starting materials. After confirming with the XRD and TEM we found both BTO and MZF coexisted in one grain. Such a synthesis of two-phase perovskite/spinel single crystal grains with different grain geometries offers the potential to build new types of multi-ferroic materials.
