Abstract: Comparative researches were carried out for lithium niobate crystals with congruent and stoichiometric composition with a different genesis. It was shown that it is possible to obtain LiNbO3 crystals close in composition to stoichiometric, grown from a congruent melt with the addition of a 6.0 wt.% K2O flux. Such crystals are far superior to optical uniformity and photoelectric parameters of congruent crystals.
Keywords: single crystal, lithium niobate, photoelectric field, band gap, IR absorption spectrum, stretching vibrations of OH-groups.
