      Molybdate crystals doped with rare-earth ions are finding immense use as laser materials. Rare-earth mixed single crystals of samarium barium molybdate grown in silica gel are important for use in optical equipment and electronic and acoustic studies. These octahedral bipyramidal crystals of samarium barium molybdates are characterized by IR, EDAX and thermal analyses.

      Praseodymium barium molybdate (PBM) single crystals grown by gel method, reveal multiple and isolated octahedral bipyramidal crystals as well as spherulites of PBM at different depths from the surface inside the gel. Oscillation X-ray diffraction pattern of the sample reveals that PBM is single crystalline in nature. Infrared absorption spectrum confirms the presence of molybdate (MoO4)2− ions in PBM, while the thermogravimetric analysis shows that PBM loses molybdenum oxide component around 420°C. Energy dispersive X-ray analysis establishes the presence of Pr, Ba and Mo in the sample. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopic studies of PBM establish the presence of Pr, Ba and Mo in their respective oxide states. An empirical structure has been proposed on the basis of these findings. The implications are discussed.
