Structural Investigations on Lithium Niobate Grown by Czochralski Technique
A. Claude, V. Vaithianathan , S. Moorthy Babu and P. Ramasamy

Lithium Niobate crystals have a wide range of attractive properties like Electro-optic, Ferro-electric, Piezoelectric, Dielectric, NLO etc., They are widely used as Frequency doublers, Q-switches, Waveguide substrates, Electro-optic and SAW devices. Single crystals of transparent Lithium Niobate (LiNbO3) were grown by the Czochralski technique using an indigenous crystal growth workstation. The cut and polished samples were characterized for their structural, surface and mechanical properties.
