Growth of potassiumdihydrogenphosphate (KDP) single crystals by means of thermoelectric cooler

  • L. Vannay
Condensed Matter


A new method of constant themperature has been developed for single crystal growth from solution. The principle of the method is the following: the amount of the solvent condensed on the lid of the crystallization vessel is regulated by means of controlled cooling of the lid, and the condensed liquid is returned to the solution through the powder of material to be grown. Thus a constant supersaturation is created in a solution of constant amount. The utilization of the method for growing KDP crystals is described.
