Preparation of TbBO3 Powder and Growth of TbBO3 Crystal
Triclinic and hexagonal structure of TbBO3 was synthesized by Sol-Gel combustion method and high temperature solid state method respectively. The TbBO3 crystal was grown by fluxing Czochralski(CZ) method and LiBO2 as flux. The crystal structure was studied by FT-IR and DTA. The results of powder magnetic susceptibility of hexagonal one showed that TbBO3 may be a good candidate magneto optical material.
