Crystal growth of barium molybdate by flux evaporation

  • S K Arora
  • G S Trivikrama Rao


Single crystals of BaMoO4 have been grown by isothermal evaporation of lithium chloride at 700°C. The morphology and mechanism of growth of the crystals have been discussed. The quality of the crystal has been assessed by selective etching.
