A novel temperature-difference method was applied to produce CuBr crystals by using ethylene glycol as solvent and KBr as mineralizer; the temperature of the growth zone and the dissolution zone are 150°C and 110°C, respectively. The process was performed at ambient pressure. Clear, triangular, millimeter-scaled CuBr single crystals were obtained. The crystals were characterized by powder X-ray diffraction and selected area electron diffraction.
