Crystal Growth

Abstract

The dependence of the Nd segregation coefficient on Nd concentration in PbWO4 and PbMoO4 melts and on the method of its introduction is analyzed. In a study of the PbMoO4-Nd2(MoO4)3 pseudobinary system, the existence of the PbNd4(MoO4)7 compound is established for the first time. Its structure is identified, the melting temperature and character are determined, and a single crystal is grown. The dependences of the damage threshold and anomalous biaxiality angle of PbWO4:Nd3+ and PbMoO4:Nd3+ crystals on the concentration of the activator and the method of its introduction are investigated.
