Abstract

TbAl 3 ( BO 3 ) 4 single crystal was grown from a K 2 Mo 3 O 10 B 2 O 3 system using the top-seeded high temperature solution method (TSSG), 20 mm × 9 mm × 7 mm in size. The grown crystal was characterized by x-ray diffraction analysis showing that the crystal has a trigonal structure and the space group is R32 with lattice parameters of a = b = 9.293 ( 13 ) Å , c = 7.249 ( 6 ) Å . Faraday rotations of TbAl 3 ( BO 3 ) 4 crystal were investigated at room temperature at wavelengths of 532, 633, and 1064 nm. Finally, the Verdet constants were measured at V = 108.8 , 85.7 , and 20.8 rad / mT for 532, 633, and 1064 nm, respectively.
