We report here on the optical and structural characteristics carried out on strontium doped calcium tartrate tetrahedral single crystalline materials obtained by diffusing calcium and strontium ions through silica gel impregnated with optically active tartaric acid. Linear optical properties of this material such as refractive index, birefringence and transmission characteristics were measured in the wavelength range 200 nm <λ<1500 nm. No dispersion of the birefringence was observed within the experimental accuracy. The packing of tartrate molecules remained unaltered with 12% of the strontium doping.
