Growth of Pure and Mo Doped Potassium Titanyl Phosphate (KTP) Crystals:Influence of KTP/Flux Ratios on the Growth Morphology
ABSTRACT
Pure and Molybdenum (Mo) doped Potassium Titanyl Phosphate (KTP) inorganic crystals were grown by high temperature solution growth (HTSG) from poly phosphate (K6P4O13) flux using different KTP/Flux ratios. The pure and doped KTP crystals of size 20x13x5 mm3 and 7x5x2.5 mm3 respectively were grown successfully by spontaneous nucleation. The grown crystals were characterized by XRD, UV, FTIR and Hardness studies. Micro hardness studies show that the pure crystals are harder than the Mo doped crystals.
