Abstract :

A perovskite-like phase, K3B6O10Cl exhibits a large second harmonic response about four times that of KH2PO4 (KDP) and is transparent from the deep UV (180 nm) to middle-IR region. A high quality single crystal of K3B6O10Cl with dimensions up to 30 15 7 mm3 was successfully grown by the top-seeded solution growth method. Crystal morphologies and growth habits of K3B6O10Cl grown with seeds oriented along [101] and [211] were studied, and the best growth direction was obtained., The refractive indices of the crystal were measured by the minimum deviation technique and fitted to the Sellmeier equations. The nonlinear optical coefficients have been determined by the method of Maker fringes at λ=1064 nm. The suitable nonlinear optical coefficients as well as comparatively easy crystal growth make the K3B6O10Cl crystal a promising candidate for NLO materials.
