Etch figures on gallium orthophosphate (GaPO4) crystals are presented for the {0 0 1}, {0 1 0}, {2 (1) over bar 0}, {(2) over bar 1 0} and (1 0 1} faces. Primarily they are used in detecting possibly occurring domains of twinning. Generally, the etch figures of GaPO4 show similarities as well as differences compared to those of low-quartz modifications of SiO2 and AlPO4. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
