Abstract
The large lattice parameter (ao equals 23.44 angstroms) of cubic YB66 together with its vacuum compatibility, mechanical properties and resistance to radiation damage makes this material well suited for use as soft x-ray monochromator in the 1 - 2 keV region. Crystals obtained by various growth modes of an indirect heating floating zone (IHFZ) technique are characterized with x-ray topography and rocking curve measurements using both laboratory and synchrotron sources. The results indicate that high quality single crystals of YB66 large enough to accept at least 1 mrad of synchrotron beam can be produced.
