By means of orientation imaging microscopy, we have investigated grain orientation distributions of various BaTiO3 ceramic samples prepared using different preparation routes. We present details of the required surface preparation steps in order to enable an automated orientation mapping. The samples are characterized by image quality (IQ), grain size (GS) and grain orientation (IPF) maps. Finally, the grain orientation distribution functions are obtained from the measured data. It is shown that the samples do not exhibit any preferred grain orientations.
