The results of studies for the optical transmission spectra, radiation hardness and the refractive indices of Ba(1-x)SrB2O4 (x=0.1) single crystals grown with the Czochralsky technique are presented. The investigations have shown that the substitutive Sr impurity improves the technological process of single-crystal growth, though leads simultaneously to worsening the transmittance and the radiation hardness. The assumption about the additional influence of incontrollable Na impurity on the mentioned properties of Ba0.9Sr0.1B24 single crystals is made.

Key words: alpha-BaB2O4 single crystals, impurities, transmission spectra, radiation hardness, refractive index
