Pure and barium added strontium tartrate trihydrate single crystals were grown using silica gel by chemical reaction method at room temperature. The DC conductivity measurements were carried out on the crystals. The Arrhenius plots show that two types of conduction exists in these crystals-one at low temperature and the other at high temperature in the form of extrinsic and intrinsic conduction, respectively. Within the temperature range considered in the present study these crystals do not exhibit ferroelectric transitions.
Keywords: Crystal growth; strontium tartrate trihydrate; DC conductivity; electrical properties.
