Paper Abstract

Melt-growth of bulk material at high temperatures leads to stress-and diffusion-induced dislocations, precipitation and non-uniform alloy composition. These defects can be reduced by epitaxial growth at lower temperatures, but epitaxial processes are prone to surface and substrate-layer interface defects and the propagation of line defects from the substrate. Results from the UK R&D programme are used to illustrate the ways in which many of these problems are being solved.
