Gel Growth of K2PbCu(NO2)6-Elpasolite Single Crystals

Gel Growth of K2PbCu(NO2)6-Elpasolite Single Crystals
Tiglet Besara, Theo Siegrist, Lianyang Dong, Alyssa Henderson
K2PbCu(NO2)6 single crystals can be grown in silica gels where convection is largely eliminated, resulting in diffusion controlled growth. Suspended in the soft gel, the crystals grow close to thermal equilibrium and develop {1 0 0} face bounded cubes, reflecting the cubic symmetry. With increasing size, {1 1 1} and {1 1 0} faces develop to lower the free energy.
