Physical properties of Czochralski-grown single crystal BeAl2O4 are reported. Data on hardness, thermal expansion, thermal conductivity, and elastic constants are tabulated as a function of crystallographic orientation. Results indicate that the properties of BeAl2O4 compare favourably with those of Al2O3.
