Electron Microprobe Analysis of Precipitates in the Laser Crystal Material Fluorapatite

Volume 23, Number 5 (Oct. 1969) Page 490-492

Walitsky, P.J.; Hopkins, R.H.

Electron probe microanalysis has been used to identify precipitates in calcium fluorapatite Ca5(PO4)3F. Crystals grown from nonstoichiometric melts were found to have defects of either CaF2 or Ca3(PO4)2 depending on the melt composition.
