The electrophoretic deposition of single-crystalline α-alumina particles dispersed in aqueous media was performed in a strong magnetic field of 10 T. The α-alumina particles in the stable suspension were aligned due to their anisotropic diamagnetic susceptibility and then deposited on a cathodic substrate. The orientation of the α-alumina crystallites was confirmed by x-ray diffraction of the sintered specimen.
