    • Abstract


      Ferroelectric crystals of lead nitrate phosphate (LNP) have been grown employing the controlled reaction between lead nitrate and orthophosphoric acid. The microhardness of LNP crystals has been determined. The effect of annealing and quenching on the mechanical properties of these crystals has been studied.
