Crystal Growth Technology

Byrappa & Ohachi (eds.)

Advances in many modern technologies depend greatly on the availability of suitable single crystals, whether for lasers, semiconductors, magnetic devices, optical devices, superconductors, etc. Unless the science of growing these crystals is understood precisely, it is impossible to grow several types (i.e. diamond, silicon carbide, PZT) for application in industry. This book fills in the blanks, through the writings of the most senior engineers in the industry.
