Paper Abstract

Single crystals of triglycine sulphate (TGS) doped with Pr3+ Sm3+, Pd2+, Co2+, Pt4+ and PO43- with L-alanin were grown from aqueous solutions by means of the slow cooling method. Surface morphology, domain structure and P-E hysteresis loops have been investigated. The model of catalyzed growth of {001}and{101}crystal pyramids on the basis of metal-glycine complexes has been suggested. We have found on the basis of experimental results that TGS single crystals doped with Pt4+ and L-alanin are excellent materials for construction of infrared detectors.
