Paper Abstract

Using the technique of rolling, KCl single crystals were reduced to round polycrystalline fibers with surfaces which duplicate the surface of the rolls. Crystals were rolled at 300°C to 1.5 mm diameter for a reduction in area of 90%. Due to the imperfections in the cast iron rolls, the fiber surface that was duplicated was of only fair quality. This led to the design of improved rolls with polished surfaces.
