Publication on the laser furnace for the production of crystals
The recently introduced laser furnace by Quantum Design Japan has now been described in an article and first crystals have been shown. The furnace can generate temperatures of over 2000 °C by means of five laser beams.
This novel system promises the opportunity to grow materials unable to be grown by traditional floating zone methods.
