Preparation of oriented AlN bulk ceramics was achieved by slip casting in a high magnetic field. The c-axis of AlN was perpendicular to the direction of a magnetic field. The mechanical properties and the thermal conductivity of the textured AlN depend on the direction of the crystallographic orientation.
