By surface structure and X-ray topographic observation, growth mechanism of NAB single crystal grown by TSSG technique using a BaB4O7 flux was studied. Surface structure of grown crystals were investigated by optical microscope. Growth history and crystal defects included within grown crystal were investigated using X-ray topography. The {001} faces were grown by 2-D nucleation growth. As decreasing cooling rate, growth mechanism of {111} and {11} was changed from 2-D nucleation growth to the growth by screw dislocation. Only surface striations developed parallel to a-axis were observed on {010} faces. Growth sector of NAB crystals were divided into {001}, {111}, {010}, {021}, {11}. The inclusion which was usually trapped between {001} faces was investigated.
