Abstract

Temperature Reduction method for the rapid growth of a single crystal CsNaC5O5, which is a piezoelectric material is explored. The key component in this method, the metastable region of CsNaC5O5 aqueous solution, was established. Two curves that constitute such metastable region, super-saturation curve and solubility curve, were obtained via reducing temperature of solution and using Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy. The large difference in the solubility of CsNaC5O5, 0.794 g/100mL at 0 °C and 3.636 g/100mL at 60 °C, makes Temperature Reduction method ideal for rapidly growing single CsNaC5O5 crystal, which is vital to the projects exploring ferroelectricity under different conditions. The apparatus for rapid growth is very close to being put together.
