Growth and piezoelectric properties of TmCOB single crystals


New rare-earth oxyborate crystals TmCOB were grown by using the Czochralski method. The piezoelectric coefficients for TmCOB were determined to be on the order of d<sub>11</sub>=1.7, d<sub>12</sub>=3.8, d<sub>13</sub>=-4.2, d<sub>15</sub>=-0.92, d<sub>24</sub>=4.9, d<sub>26</sub>=7.8, d<sub>31</sub>=-0.75, d<sub>32</sub>=-2.4, d<sub>33</sub>=2.2 and d<sub… (More)
