Growth, morphology and structure of CsRP4O12 crystals

  • K. Byrappa

We have grown CsRP4O12 (R3+ is a rare-earth ion) crystals from 85% phosphoric acid solutions. Morphological, optical and X-ray studies have been carried out on all the crystals. CsRP4O12 crystallizes in four different structural modifications. The variation in growth temperature causes variation in their morphology and crystal structure.
