Paper Abstract

This paper reviews a series of experiments carried out at Stanford University over a several year period on the growth of β-BaB2O4 crystals. Experiments on the bulk growth of β-BaB2O4 using the top-seeded solution growth method with and without pulling, using Na2O as a solvent, has yielded relatively large boules. Solvent inclusions, however, limit the yield of high optical quality crystals from these boules. Oriented, single crystal fibers of β-BaB2O4 have also been grown, from both Na2O and B2O3 solutions, using the laser-heated pedestal growth technique. B2O3 solutions were found to be quite stable under laser heating, and yielded high optical quality single crystal fibers with minimal inclusions.
