Abstract

The rapid crystallization of KH$_{2}$PO$_{4}$(KDP) from solution is demonstrated at a rate up to approximate to 7.5 mm/day along [100] and 22 mm/day along [001] in a crystallizer of 51 capacity, using accelerated crucible rotation technique (ACRT) and simulated platform geometry for controlling the hydrodynamic conditions. On an experimental basis we have grown the crystals up to 40 x 43 x 66 mm$^3$ size in about 3 days. Comparative analysis of the main structural and optical properties of crystals grown by conventional and rapid crystallization technique, is discussed.
