Single crystal of new cadmium and ytterbium molybdato-tungstate (Cd0.9706⎕0.0098Yb0.0196(MoO4)0.9706(WO4)0.0294, where ⎕ denotes cationic vacancies) has been successfully grown by the Czochralski method in air and under 1 MPa. X-ray crystallographic analysis reveals that the as-grown single crystal belongs to a scheelite-type structure (a = b = 5.15539(12) and c = 11.1919(3) Å, space group I41/a), in which Yb3+ ions do not show long-range order and are randomly distributed in the unit cell, substituting the Cd2+ ones. The as-grown single crystal does not show anisotropy of optical properties, i.e. its direct band gap reaches Eg = 1.76 or 1.75 eV along (100) and (001) crystallographic directions, respectively. The single crystal exhibits paramagnetic state with short-range antiferromagnetic and long-range ferrimagnetic interactions, a magnetization with zero coercivity and, a remanence that is almost a universal function of H/T, characterizing superparamagnetic-like behaviour. Electrical studies of the new ytterbium-doped cadmium molybdato-tungstate single crystal show a relatively small dielectric constant (εr<12), large lossiness of Joule-Lenz type observed at low frequencies as well as nonlinear I-V characteristics of Schottky or Maxwell-Wagner type.
