The analysis of morphology evolution in KABO crystal growth
In this paper, the existence of [BO3](3-), [AlO4](5-) growth units was proved by the results of high-temperature Raman measurements of KABO crystal growth solution. It was found via high-temperature crystal growth in situ observation device that the morphology of KABO crystal varies with the supersaturation of the crystal growth solution. The mechanism of KABO crystal morphology evolution was analyzed through Growth units model. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
