Paper Abstract

Single crystals of terbium scandium aluminum garnet (TSAG) have been grown for application in optical isolators by the Czochralski technique. The crystals were colorless and highly transparent but contained a strained core due to (211) growth faces. The Verdet constant and optical absorption were measured in the range of 500 - 1400 nm.
