The growth of YVO4 single crystals was investigated by the Laser-Heated Pedestal Growth method (LHPG) and flux technique. Several crystal growth experiments using LHPG were performed to optimize growth conditions by varying the Y2O3 and V2O5 proportions of the starting powders, the growth atmosphere, the laser power, and the pulling rate. The crystals were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), optical microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) microprobe, chemical analysis, and Raman spectroscopy. © 1993 Elsevier Science Ltd.
