Mass-transport processes within the boundary layers for the metastable-phase growth of potassium dideuterium phosphate (DKDP) crystals have been studied by holographic phase contrast interferometric microscopy (HPCIM) and laser diffractometry. The relationship between the growth rates of the stable and metastable phase and mass-transport effects in the layers has also been discussed. From the point of view of crystal growth kinetics, the approach of rapid growth of high-quality large DKDP crystals is presented.
