  • Single crystal
    A single crystal or monocrystalline solid is a material in which the crystal lattice of the entire sample is continuous and unbroken to the edges of the sample, with no grain boundaries.
  • Crystal
    A crystal or crystalline solid is a solid material whose constituents (such as atoms, molecules or ions) are arranged in a highly ordered microscopic structure, forming a crystal lattice that extends in all directions.
  • Lithium fluoride
    Lithium fluoride is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula LiF.
  • Lithium tantalate
    Lithium tantalate (LiTaO3), is a crystalline solid which possesses unique optical, piezoelectric and pyroelectric properties which make it valuable for nonlinear optics, passive infrared sensors such as motion detectors, terahertz generation and detection, surface acoustic wave applications, cell phones and possibly pyroelectric nuclear fusion.
  • Calcium fluoride
    Calcium fluoride is the inorganic compound with the formula CaF2.
  • Barium fluoride
    Barium fluoride (BaF2) is a chemical compound of barium and fluorine and is a salt.
  • Cave of the Crystals
    Cave of the Crystals or Giant Crystal Cave (Spanish: Cueva de los Cristales) is a cave connected to the Naica Mine 300 metres (980 ft) below the surface in Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico.
  • Austenite
    Austenite, also known as gamma-phase iron (γ-Fe), is a metallic, non-magnetic allotrope of iron or a solid solution of iron, with an alloying element.
  • Rock candy
    Rock candy (also called rock sugar) is a type of confection composed of relatively large sugar crystals.
  • Crystal structure
    In crystallography, crystal structure is a description of the ordered arrangement of atoms, ions or molecules in a crystalline material.
  • Strontium fluoride
    Strontium fluoride, SrF2, also called strontium difluoride and strontium(II) fluoride, is a fluoride of strontium.
  • Potassium aluminium borate
    Potassium aluminium borate (K2Al2B2O7) is an ionic compound composed of potassium ions, aluminium ions, and borate ions.
  • Crystal growth
    A crystal is a solid material whose constituent atoms, molecules, or ions are arranged in an orderly repeating pattern extending in all three spatial dimensions.
  • Lithium triborate
    Lithium triborate (LiB3O5) LBO is a non-linear optics crystal.
  • Nd:YAB
    Nd:YAB (Yttrium aluminum borate, YAl3(BO3)4, hereafter referred to as YAB), is grown by the flux method with a modified molybdate flux system.
  • Nd:YCOB
    Nd-doped YCOB (Nd:YCa4O(BO3)3) is a nonlinear optical crystal, which is commonly used as an active laser medium.
  • Lithium niobate
    Lithium niobate (LiNbO3) is a compound of niobium, lithium, and oxygen.
  • Caesium cadmium bromide
    Caesium cadmium bromide (CsCdBr3) is a synthetic crystalline material.
  • Caesium cadmium chloride
    Caesium cadmium chloride (CsCdCl3) is a synthetic crystalline material.
