Abstract

A large-size single-crystal of the perovskite BaBiO3 has been successfully grown by the floating-zone (FZ) method. The FZ growth was carried out under flowing O2 gas at 2 atm in an infrared heating furnace equipped with the quartet ellipsoidal mirrors. The growth rate was 1 mm/h. The rotation speed of the upper and lower shafts was 10 rpm in the opposite direction. Diffraction spots in the x-ray back-Laue photograph of the grown crystal were very sharp, indicating the good quality of the grown crystal. The powder x-ray diffraction revealed that the grown crystal was of the single phase of BaBiO3.
