Ferroelectric single crystals such as lead hydrogen phosphate (LHP) and dihydrated lead nitrate phosphate (LNP) have been derived from the diffusion of lead nitrate into the set gel containing orthophosphoric acid. By employing Faraday’s Gouy balance technique, the magnetic susceptibilities of LHP and LNP have been determined. It has been observed that (i) the gram and molar susceptibilities are independent of magnetic field, (ii)

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.

Lead nitrate phosphate (LNP) single crystals were grown in silica hydrogel at an ambient temperature employing various nucleation control methods. The effect of concentration of feed solution, gel density, gel pH, ageing of gels and temperature on reduction of nucleation centres is reported. Kinetic studies of the nucleation and growth of LNP crystals and dentrites were studied. The crystals are characterized by X-ray diffraction, density measurements, magnetic susceptibility, mechanical strength measurements and dissolution behaviour.
