Study growth and characterization of chloride doped potassium dihydrogen orthophosphate crystal

Main Article Content

S. Revathi


Potassium dihydrogen phosphate (KDP) crystal has been doped with chloride to alter its physical and chemical properties.The pure and chloride mixtured KDP was grown by slow evaporation solution growth technique. The X-raydiffractometry (XRD) analys is shows that the crystalline perfection these optimum conditions is extremely good without having any internal structural grain boundaries and mosaic nature. The lattice parameters have been determined for pure KDP and chloride mixtured KDP from the single crystal XRD. The crystals grown by these optimum conditions show positive effects in the various characterization techniques.
