Description: This paper suggests a new technique of growth-oriented KDP crystals in the form of plates. The technique includes: using small oriented seeds spaced between two parallel platforms with a rapid growth of crystals between these two platforms, in a tank containing a KDP solution. As a result, crystals in the form of plates can be obtained. The thickness of the crystal plate depends on the distance between platforms. The horizontal dimensions of the plate depend on the volume of solution and the diameter of the platforms. The orientation of the plates are defined by the orientation of the seed. KDP crystals in the form of plates of two orientations are grown. The peculiarities of morphology and some characteristics of crystals are discussed.
