Title: Controllable solute-diffusion gel-growth of BCHT: an effective approach towards large functional material single crystal synthesis

Abstract

An underutilized, but highly advantageous, method of growing functional-single-crystals, the gel-growth technique, is highlighted. Large nonlinear optical crystals, BCHT, were grown and their dehydration phase-transformation to β-BTC were studied.
