Synthesis And Crystal Growth

Abstract

Large single crystals of CsB3O5 (CBO), free of cracks and inclusions, were successfully grown by the Kyropoulos technique from a slightly Cs2)-enriched melt. The growth conditions were experimentally established. Maximum dimensions obtained were 45×41×44 mm fora×b×c-axes. Optical uniformity of these as-grown crystals was verified by means of striation observation, and the optical transparency characteristic was measured in the region from vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) to infrared (IR) wavelengths.
