A perovskite-like phase, K3B6O10Cl exhibits a large second harmonic response about four times that of KH2PO4 (KDP) and is transparent from the deep UV (180 nm) to middle-IR region. A high quality single crystal of K3B6O10Cl with dimensions up to 30 × 15 × 7 mm3 was successfully grown by the top-seeded solution growth method. Crystal morphologies and growth habits of K3B6O10Cl grown with seeds oriented along [101] and [211] were studied, and the best growth direction was obtained., The refractive indices of the crystal were measured by the minimum deviation technique and fitted to the Sellmeier equations[1].The nonlinear optical coefficients have been determined by the method of Maker fringes at λ=1064 nm. The suitable nonlinear optical coefficients as well as comparatively easy crystal growth make the K3B6O10Cl crystal a promising candidate for NLO materials[2-9].
