Abstract

The high-quality CdWO4crystal of 80-90 mm in diameter and 180-200 mm long has been grown by Low Thermal Gradient Czochralski technique (LTG Cz). Large area atomically flat CdWO4(010) substrates have been prepared by cleavage. The CdWO4(010) surface is stable in the air up to 600 °C. At higher temperatures, the precipitation of WO3and W19O55oxides has been detected by RHEED.
