Abstract:

IN THE BROAD FIELD OF CRYSTAL PHYSICS, THREE MAIN PROBLEMS ARE UNDER STUDY, 1 preparation and purification of starting materials for crystal growth, 2 study of crystal growth and practical crystal growing, 3 investigation of intrinsic and structure-sensitive properties of single crystals. Processes of crystal growth from solution and melt and by flame fusion were studied. A variety of organic, inorganic, and metal crystals were grown for the study of their propertiesAND SPECIAL EFFECTS. Imperfections of crystals were studied by means of high-precision latticeconstant determination, weighing density, thermal etching, ionic conductivity, and optical absorption. A great part of the work was devoted to a study of electron and hole traps in pure and doped crystals by means of color centers. Author
