Abstract: Mechanical properties of titanium and iron co-doped Sapphire crystal are first studied at room temperature Large (ø180 × 280 mm3 in dimension 30 kg in weight) titanium and iron codoped sapphire single crystal is grown by the Kyropoulos technique It is shown that the fracture strength and surface hardness and fracture toughness of as-grown crystals are significantly improved and the visible-infrared optical property is not adversely affected by titanium and iron codoping and certain heat treatment. The Fe3+ in the doped Fe2O3 palys a role of substituting Al3+, leading to an in creased internal stress in the crystal. And the Ti4+ in the doped TiO2 crystallizes the second phase needle crystal and brings in a toughening effect through certain heat treatment. As a consequence, the mechanical properties of as-grown sapphire are improved at room temperature. The present work has the realistic significance for developing the sapphires of excellent mechanical properties.
