Contents: Part 1 Physico-chemical properties of Lithium metaniobate: phase diagram for the Li2O-Nb2O5 system; crystal structure of lithium metaniobate; crystal-chemical features of metaniobates of alkali metals; phase formation in LN crystals. Part 2 Methods of obtaining single crystals of lithium niobate: peculiarities of growth of LN single crystals; synthesis of the charge and preparation of the melt; choice of the optimum conditions for growth; growth conditions for LN crystals of a constant radius; high-temperature annealing and formation of single domains in crystals; the Stepanov technique; electric phenomena arising in crystallization of LN. Part 3 Defect structure of single crystal lithium niobate: morphology and macrodefects; point defects in LN; formation of F-centres in LN crystals; twinning in LN crystals. Part 4 The domain structure of lithium niobate crystals: ferroelectric domains in lithium metaniobate; selective etching of LN crystals; growth domain structure; formation of a stationary domain structure; depolarization mechanisms of lithium metaniobate crystals; the influence of temperature gradients on domain formation in the process of crystal growth and annealing; the effect of annealing on the near-surface domain structure; the regular domain structure in LN crystals. Part 5 Electrical properties of lithium metaniobate: electric conductivity; dielectric properties; thermal diffusion in lithium niobate crystals; relaxation phenomena in lithium niobate crystals; electric fields in lithium niobate crystals; electret effect and relaxation polarization of lithium niobate; thermionic emission of lithium niobate single crystals; effective ion charges and spontaneous electric moment of lithium niobate. Part 6 Optical and electro-optical properties of lithium metaniobate single crystals: optical properties of lithium metaniobate; electro-optical effect in dielectric crystals; phenomenological theory of the electro-optical effect; establishment of electro-optic coefficients; specific features of lithium niobate crystals applications in electro-optical devices. Part 7 Nonlinear optical properties of lithium niobate: elements of nonlinear optics; methods used to establish nonlinear coefficients; relationship of birefrigence and phase-matching temperature to lithium niobate crystal composition; criteria for nonlinear-optical quality of crystals; establishment of SHG in lithium niobate crystals with periodic laminar ferroelectric domains. Part 8 Photoelectrical and photorefractive properties: model representation of the photorefractive effect; occurrence of optical distortion in lithium niobate crystals exposed to cw laser radiation; occurrence of optical distortion in lithium niobate exposed to pulsed laser radiation.
