What is it about?

Notably, beautiful LSMH single crystals were grown in short period with higher growth rate and excellent optical qualities than previous reports. The specific features of the process and analysis of the temperature flow and concentration fields of the SR method are explained. In addition, the photoconductivity behavior and third order nonlinear optical properties of the grown LSMH single crystals were investigated.

Why is it important?

This is an important paper in the field of crystal engineering. The authors made significant modifications in the uniaxial solution-crystallization Sankaranarayanan - Ramasamy (SR) method to grow inverse solubility large LSMH single crystals.


The proposed crystallization process of LSMH by the modified SR method can be used as a model to grow other such inversely soluble materials with higher crystalline perfection.
