The crystal structure of strontium tellurite (STO), SrTeO3, has been determined at room temperature using X-ray diffraction data obtained from single crystals grown by the Czochralski method. Selection of a non-centrosymmetric (C2) structure model was confirmed by the second harmonic generation test. The structure of STO is built up of three types of distorted [SrOx] polyhedra (x = 6, 7 and 8) which share their oxygen anions with TeO3 pyramidal units. These main anionic polyhedra are responsible for establishing two types of tunnels required for the electron lone pairs of the Te4+ cation.
