Hydrothermal crystal growth offers a complementary alternative to many of the classical techniques of crystal growth used to synthesize new materials and grow bulk crystals for specific applications. This specialized technique is often capable of growing crystals at temperatures well below their melting points and thus potentially offers routes to new phases or the growth of bulk crystals with less thermal strain. Borate crystals are widely used as nonlinear optical, laser and luminescent materials due to their diversified structures, and good chemical and physical properties. The growth of high-quality borate crystals is required for their applications. A fundamental problem for borate crystal growth is the high-temperature melt structures in the crystal growth systems. This book discusses several crystals and the crystal growth processes. (Imprint: Novinka)
