Abstract

Metastable zonewidth and induction period measurements of Benzimidazole (BMZ) are presented. The nucleation parameters such as interfacial tension, radius of the critical nucleus and critical free energy change have been calculated for the solution grown Benzimidazole (BMZ) single crystals at different supersaturation ratios. The grown BMZ crystals were characterized by the differential scanning calorimetric studies for analysis of thermal properties. The dielectric behaviour of the crystal was studied at different temperature and frequency. The laser damage threshold studies show that BMZ crystal has higher laser damage threshold.
