This report introduces briefly some concepts and materials on crystal growth presented by Dr. Zhen-yu Zhang from the Oak Ridge (TN) National Laboratory, and Dr. En-ge Wang from the Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, in a session on crystal growth at the first Chinese-American Frontiers of Science Symposium. Crystal growth involves a variety of research fields ranging from surface physics, crystallography, and material sciences to condenser mater physics. Though it has been…

Historical aspects of crystal growth technology
Abstract The father of crystal fabrication technology is A. Verneuil with his flame-fusion growth method 1902. His principles of nucleation and growth control are adapted in most later growth methods
Growth of Organic Nonlinear Optical Crystals from Solution
Investigations on the growth of good quality single crystals play an important role in the development of modern scientific world with advanced technology. Behind the development in every new solid
CVD-diamond single-crystal growth
The synthesis of diamond volume crystals is of particular interest due to the material's outstanding physical and mechanical properties. Various techniques are pursued by numerous research groups. In
The research undertaken since 20 years in our laboratory is aiming to address the problem of the relationship between the crystal growth parameters (pulling rate, thermal gradients, set-up geometry,

Crystals growing in microgravity from solution should be more perfect if they preferentially trap stress-inducing impurities, thus creating an impurity-depleted zone around themselves, but this zone is developed only around the crystals growing in the absence of convection.
Nucleation, Growth, and Relaxation of Thin Films: Metal(100) Homoepitaxial Systems
Nucleation and growth of materials are kinetically-determined processes. As such, they typically lead to nonequilibrium morphologies, which relax in some fashion afterward. This set of
Crystal Growth through the Ages: A Historical Perspective
Abstract The field of crystal growth has a long and distinguished history. Much of today's advanced technologies and scientific knowledge is due to the availability of high-quality single crystals.
The Development of Crystal Growth Technology
The industrial production of crystals started with A. Verneuil with his flamefusion growth method 1902. He can be regarded as the father of crystal growth technology as his principles of nucleation


Experimental Realization of the Covalent Solid Carbon Nitride
Qualitative tests indicate that the C-N solids are thermally robust and hard and Rutherford backscattering measurements show that up to 40 percent nitrogen can be incorporated on average into these solids under the present reaction conditions.
alpha beta Experimental evidence for alpha - and beta -phases of pure crystalline C3N4 in films deposited on nickel substrates
Crystalline C3N4 films have been synthesized on nickel (100) substrates via hot-filament chemical vapour deposition using a gas mixture of nitrogen and methane activated by a bias. Scanning electron
Atomistic Processes in the Early Stages of Thin-Film Growth
The atomic nature of the most important kinetic mechanisms of film growth is explored, which include adatom diffusion on terraces, along steps, and around island corners; nucleation and dynamics of the stable nucleus; atom attachment to and detachment from terraces and islands; and interlayer mass transport.
Observation of crystalline C3N4.
Strong experimental evidence is presented suggesting that there is strong experimental evidence suggesting that this material predicted by theory to have bulk moduli comparable to diamond has been synthesized.
Novel materials from theory
The structures of crystals can be predicted using information about their chemical composition as the only input. Such approaches will greatly aid the search for new materials.
