Laser Сonoscopiс Research Technique For Single Crystals LiNbO3: Mg

Optical homogeneity and subtle features of structural distortions in a series of single crystals of lithium niobate (LiNbO3) of congruent composition doped Mg2+ [0.01 - 5.5 mol%] Investigated by laser conoscopic method using radiation He-Ne laser (λ = 632.8 nm ) of less than 1 mW.
