Single Crystal Growth with CO2 Laser-Heated Floating-Zone

By the 1970s, the telecommunications industry was increasingly interested in growing single crystal oxides of small-diameter and high-purity due to their advantageous material properties for fiber optical applications. The floating zone technique was the preferred choice, but could not be applied due to inefficient RF heating of the oxides. A solution to this problem was presented … Continue reading
