Abstract

The mode of occurrence and the origin of cracking of lithium tetraborate (Li2B4O7) single crystals during growth have been investigated. The melt temperature dependence and the origin of crystal cracking have been explained in terms of activation enthalpy change for viscous flow in Li2B4O7 melt associated with temperature distribution in the melt.
