Since the properties of materials can be tuned by its microstructure, different morphological BaW[O.sub.4] such as nanowires, spheres, cylinders, whiskers, penniform BaW[O.sub.4] nanostructures, and flower-like structures were prepared [18-23] and methods like solid-state reaction [24-26], hydrothermal-method [9, 27-29], Czochralski [30-33], high temperature flux crystallization [34], polymeric precursor chemical route [35], microwave-assisted synthesis [36, 37], and micro emulsions-based routes [19,38]were employed for the synthesis.
