Barium titanate, BaTiO 3 , has applications in optical information processing by using its excellent photorefractive properties. Growth of BaTiO 3 by the top-seeded solution growth technique is unusually difficult compared to the growth of other crystals. Single-crystal quality is very sensitive to temperature changes. We discuss techniques for the solution growth of BaTiO 3 . We apply continuous weight determination to help understand and control the growth process. Single-crystal 100 gram… CONTINUE READING
