Abstract

Surface topographies of the {100} and {101} faces of as-grown potassium dihydrogen phosphate (KDP) crystals were observed ex situ by atomic force microscopy (AFM). Growth hillocks, step bunching, growth spirals, 2D nucleus and hollow cores were detected. AFM images provided qualitative features and quantitative data on crystals grown under different conditions, which are in quite good agreement with theoretical description, A discussion of the experimental problems concerning the use Of the AFM is also included.
