Paper Abstract

The Heat Exchanger Method (HEM), a new crystal growth process, is in commercial production for 20 cm diameter sapphire crystals and 40 cm diameter silicon ingots for optical applications. The simplicity of the HEM combined with a very high degree of control of the submerged, solid-liquid interface allows growth of high-quality crystals. The HEM is also being adapted for the growth of Co:MgF2, Ti:A1203 and Cr:A1203 crystals for laser applications.
