Abstract

Growth of congruent LiNbO3 (CLN) single crystals by the Czochralski method in an air atmosphere with ADC (Automatic Diameter Control) r.f. heating was investigated. The conditions required to grow high quality CLN single crystals are described. The relationship of the latter to the growth mechanism is discussed and a mechanism proposed which provides an explanation of the manner in which the crystals grow and reject impurities. The high quality CLN single crystal with growth direction of <104> and <001> was produced by effective control of growth conditions.
