Sufficiently large yellowish single crystals of KDP doped with various concentrations of $K_2CrO_4$ have been grown for electro-optic device applications, by the slow-evaporation Holden's rotary crystallizer technique. These crystals have been characterized for their ferroelectric and linear electro-optic properties. The doped crystals have low half-wave voltages as compared with that of pure KDP while there are no significant changes in the ferroelectric properties.
