KCl Single Crystals Growth with Mn, Ag and In Impurities by Czochralski Method and Study of Impurities Influence on Their Properties
Abstract: In this research KCl, KCl:Mn, KCl:Ag and KCl:In single crystals have been grown by Czochralski method. X-ray diffraction confirms KCl single crystal formation. In this work also influence of mentioned impurities on the optical property of KCl single crystal has been studied by chemical etching. Then the hardness of these crystals have been measured by Vickers micro hardness. The result indicate the positive effect of the impurity on optical and mechanical properties.
