Abstract

Al-doped Ca3TaGa3Si2O14single crystals with various Al concentrations were grown by the micro-pulling-down method and their structure and chemical composition were investigated. Ca3Ta(Ga1-xAlx)3Si2O14crystals with x=0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8 and 1 were grown. They were highly transparent and a single phase of langasite-type structure was confirmed in the powder X-ray diffraction measurement. Their lattice parameters related to the a- and c-axes systematically decreased with increase in Al concentration. It followed from the EPMA analysis that the real Al concentration in the crystals almost corresponded to the nominal compositions.
