Abstract : Single-crystal materials currently in the use in various fields of optoelectronics are reviewed from the viewpoint of materials science. The characteristics of crystal-line laser hosts, nonlinear optic crystals, electroptic crystals, and ultrasonic light diffraction solid media are described. The present status of crystal growth by the pulling method is discussed, and relations between the growth conditions and defects in the obtained crystals are stressed. The necessary steps in the process of device fabrication are analyzed, and some important factors such as phase diagram information, domain structure in oxide ferro-electrics, and laser damage susceptibility are pointed out. Some theoretical treatments of oxide ferroelectric crystals useful for materials scientists are reviewed. (Author)
