Paper Abstract

Cr3+:LiCaAlF6 single crystals were grown by vertical Bridgman method from stoichiometric composition melt on our growth apparatus which was simple and easily operated. Boules were grown unseedly firstly and then along [1010] at 1 mm/h in a following atmosphere of Ar. The micro-defects in Cr3+:LiCaAlF6 have been studied in detail with the help of x-ray diffraction, optical microscope, SEM, EDS and WDS. Heterogeneous micro-crystallites, inclusions of impurity particles and bubbles are found the main defects in the crystal. Traces of OH- are found in the boules by infrared spectroscopy. The absorption and emission spectra of Cr3+ in LiCaAlF6 are also presented.
