This paper describes efforts taken in Institute of Applied Physics and Institute of Electronic Materials Technology to obtain several single crystals from borate family, namely, CsLiB6)10, Ca4GdO(BO3)3, Li2B4O7, (beta) -BaB2O4, and Yal3(BO3)4, pure and doped with several ions. The main goal of this investigation was to develop technology of these new nonlinear optical materials to create possibility of their applications in higher harmonics generators and self- frequency doubling lasers. Depending on such properties of crystallized borate materials as incongruent melting or high temperature phase transitions, Czochralski technique or high temperature solution growth technique were used. The main aspects of crystallization of these materials as well as their optical properties are discussed.
